The splendid bay of portofino, surrounded by the greenery of the promontory, is a typical ligurian fishing
village, with its high, colourful houses huddled in a semicircle around the piazzetta. Now one
of the world's most famous and exclusive resorts, this town is a favourite of international celebrities,
yet still retains an atmosphere of bygone days rich with traditions of the sea and local craftsmen.
A visit to brown castle and a walk up to St. George's church and on to the lighthouse should not
be missed. Trails leading up the mountain and down to San Fruttuoso offer an unforgettable opportunity
to appreciate the natural beauty of this idyllic spot.
