Portofino Vacations Home | Italy | Portofino

One of the prettiest harbors in Italy, Portofino is known as Liguria`s jewel. Its multicolored houses and stunning seaside scenery give this tiny harbor town a picture-perfect setting. Luxury villas perch on the hills of Portofino overlooking the marina where yachts and private boats bob on the water below set against the vibrantly colored dwellings of fishermen. There are very few beaches and hotels in the picture-perfect Portofino. What there are in abundance are bars, boutiques, nightclubs and fishing boats. Portofino is well known for its world-famous visitors like Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, just to name a few. Portofino is car-free but you can drive the narrow, windy road close to the village where there is a small parking lot. In summer, it`s usually very crowded, and driving and parking can be difficult.
