Hi, we are staying in La Specia and planning to visit Portofino. Whitch is better to travel, bus or car? Or maybe to go by car to some place and after to catch some other transport?

You take a train from La Spezia (note spelling) to Santa Margherita Liguria, from where you can walk or take a bus to Portofino.

If I go for the day I usually take the fast train to Rapallo and then the boat to Portofino and then bus back to SML

I saw that there are free parking lots in Rapallo, is it okey if we park there and after that take a bus or the parking lots are always full?

From Rapallo, you must change buses in Santa Margherita Ligure except very early and very late. For bus times see https://www.atpesercizio.it/cartina2.php… and click throug as necessary.

Rapallo is only good if you are continuing by boat traghettiportofino.it/en/wp-content/uploads/…
