Beautifully picturesque, even if it is overly touristic these days! Apr 20, 2011
Although Portofino is hardly as glitzy as the Amalfi coast or the French Riviera, this is still in the area of the Italian Riviera and its still pretty chic and amazingly beautiful. Some rather famous celebs are associated with the area - think more Brigitte Bardot and Frank Sinatra as opposed to some reality TV star! The harbour here is amazingly beautiful, and is so picturesque. It’s hard to believe that this is technically a fishing harbour, and the colourful houses are those that belong to fishermen. Nowadays, the place swarms with day-trippers and its authenticity has definitely been compromised by the restaurants and souvenir shops that have cropped up. Despite this, the views and the walk here are beautiful and not to be missed if you are in Liguria.
