The Castello Brown is on the top of the mountain that surrounds the port. There is a fairly easy walking path that gets you to Castello Brown. From there, you have fantastic views of Portofino. We did not enter the Castello because we enjoyed walking around so much. If you continue past the Castello, you reach the edge of the mountain and even more fantastic views. There is also a restaurant for snacking and drinks.

...in all of Portofino. About a 15 minute walk to the top if you're going at a casual pace. Wonderful views at the top that look directly over the town. Stunning!

get off the boat and follow the signs go via the church route as easier climb the direct route to the castillo is steep but quicker, nearly killed me I came back the other way so learnt the hard way that i did it the wrong way round... Was worth the effort though and for 5€ worth it!

The castle is worth a visit & the views over Portofino are stunning. Lots of history to absorb but not onerous

I wished I had my Vibram 5 fingers for the climb up to the castle. The views were fabulous. The stories in the castle were interesting. I mean who wouldn't want to be adopted at 44 years old?
It was an enjoyable diversion in tis enjoyable city.
