About Portofino

Located to the west of the Tigullio Gulf, in one of the most beautiful bays of the Ligurian Riviera, at the feet of the headland of the same name, Portofino is generally considered one of the most characteristic and picturesque sea towns of the Liguria region. Its coloured houses, the famous piazzetta, the emerald sea and fascinating views, have all transformed this village into one of the most famous tourist locations in the world, attracting international celebrities.

“A small village that extends like a crescent moon around this peaceful bay…” Guy de Mauppasant
