Portofino is a very charming pastel-colored resort and fishing village on the gulf of the Riviera southeast of Genoa with high-end boutiques and seafood restaurants that fringe its piazza - a small cobbled square overlooking the marina which is lined with yachts and the luxuriant nature where the waters of the sea make Portofino a corner of paradise.
This little seaside resort is immersed in an impeccably natural environment that is filled with forests, beaches and historical monuments.
Santa Margherita Ligure, Genova, Italy
The resort of Santa Margherita Ligure is one of the most attractive and charming in the Riviera of Levante - the eastern half of the Ligurian coast in north-west Italy and is also well placed to explore local highlights, namely Portofino.
Typically, if you aren't hiring a car or otherwise driving to Portofino, then, you only have two additional transportation modes to get to Portofino. Either by a vaporetto, although, not the easiest way to travel between villages, however, though, a priceless ocean view would simply compromise for that!
Otherwise, if that option doesn't suit you, then the most common strategy is catch the suburban Freccia train as there's no train station in Portofino.
So, the best way to get there would be to catch your train to Santa Margherita Ligure, and then you would board a bus for a brief trip along the boardwalk to arrive at Portofino which is a 5 km trip.
Given that you'll be taking the option of the Freccia, as such, the Frecciabianca, the most easiest solution is boarding the service on the Genoa-La Spezia rail line to get to your first of the two destinations; Santa Margherita Ligure.
Piazza della Libertà is a very small and simple square as seen above where the bus stops in Portofino. Built at the mouth of Piazza Martiri dell'Olivetta, this little piazzetta comprises of some terraces, hotels, cute little boutiques, a gelateria, pasticceria, market, trattoria, caffè bar, a wine & limoncello shop and linen shops.
Marina di Portofino is also known as Porto di Portofino which fronts together onto the Piazza Martiri dell'Olivetta, the main square of Portofino.
This marina offers a few interesting tourism and recreational activities while hosting numerous luxurious boats and yachts and some of the most divine beachside restaurants that will definitely delight your senses!
Some tourist objectives are the statue of christ of the abyss, which is approximately 17 meters beneath surface of water and stands at 2.5 meters tall at the Santa Fruttuoso bay and is ~10 minutes from from Marina di Portofino with a ferry.
Other activities include the 16th century Castello Brown and its famous 'punto panoramico' which provides you with a picturesque view of the Riviera. Additionally, the Oratory of Santa Maria Assunta, and some gothic architectural elements and classic buildings can be visited and observed here at this hidden gem on the northern Italian coast.
