La Spezia to Portofino

I believe you can catch a train from La Spezia to Portofino? How far is it? Also is a day trip to portofino sufficient to see the main centre/attractions & Hotel Splendido?

You can catch a train from La Spezia that goes to Santa Margherita Ligure; there is no direct train to Portofino. You will need to get on the bus (about 10 minute ride) for that. Check out the trenitalia website.

I would think one day would be sufficient. We spent a night in Rapallo (two towns away from Portofino). Although Portofino is beautiful, we felt that it was crowded and overpriced. One afternoon was more than enough for us. However, there are nice beaches in Paraggi and Santa Margherita and interesting museums in Rapallo, so you certainly could spend quite a bit of time in that area.
