Situated in the western part of the Gulf of Tigullio, Portofino is a small pearl with fewer than 500 inhabitants – it is unanimously considered to be one of the most beautiful places in the world, with its cove dotted with colorful houses in Ligurian style, and the national park surrounding it.
Portofino can be reached in group tours by bus, or better still by boat. There are boat services from Rapallo and Santa Margherita Ligure, that ensure that all visitors fully appreciate the beauty of these locations.
With the typical characteristics of a Ligurian coastal town, Portofino has an ancient fortress, Castello Brown, that dominates the landscape, along with the church of Saint George. Also worth a visit is the Abbey of San Fruttuoso, which can be reached by boat; it ranks as one of the most remarkable artistic treasures that has been restored and is now administrated by the the FAI.
