From our hotel in Santa Margherita, we caught the local bus to Portofino; about a half hour away. We walked through the village and around the harbour. It was over run with tourists and crowded; even in Oct. We stopped for a cup of coffee at a fun little cafe; and the staff broke out in songs from the old days. This was the highlight of this place!

The public bathroom was lovely and kept very clean. Basically the only public bathroom in the entire cinque terre area that was usable. No litter anywhere. Beautiful walking area, lovely winding paths by the sea.

Portofino & Santa Margherita the most beautiful nature and water! No beach, only rocks, wasn't a problem for us but some might not like it. The towns are cute and u can walk from one to another easily. Portofino is expensive, the other more affordable! Totally recommend! We are still under the spell of its beauty!

We arrived by ferry into the picture postcard harbor. The buildings are brilliantly colored and it is visually stunning. The streets are lined with many quant little shops (not all tourist stuff). We sat at a seaside cafe and enjoyed a wonderful local wine and a wonderful snack of olives, tomatoes in olive oil, fresh mozzarella and bread. It was a delightful experience.

Nestled in a secluded harbor, Portofino is a picturesque seaside village with brightly colored houses that have Tromp L'oeil fronts that mimic expensive architectural details. You'll find shops, restaurants, cafes, and luxury hotels as well as narrow trails that meander up the hillside to the old castle and a lighthouse at the end. Once you've explored the tiny village and hiked the trail to the lighthouse and back, you can enjoy a delicious meal and glass of wine at one of several restaurants that line the harbor. Afterwards, water taxis are available to take you to nearby Santa Margherita Ligure.
