An iconic town, one of the most famous locations in Italy: welcome to Portofino. This ancient village, which reflects itself in the deep blue of the sea, won the attentions of Hollywood stars and international jet set. But beside the glamourous aspetc of this refined paradise, there are true stories and emotions, who every visitor can live. Portofino and its surroundings are a world heritage.
The Park of Portofino dominates the Golfo del Tigullio and offers breathtaking views with the colours of the deep sea, the rocks of the coast and the intense green of the Mediterranean vegetation. But as well as nature, history also prevails in the park: the abbey of Cervara, perched above the sea between Santa Margherita and Portofino, and the abbey in the beautiful bay of San Fruttuoso di Capodimonte.
Arriving in Portofino by sea means taking in the view of its multi-coloured façades, which reflect in the water. The wonderful seagulls who have chosen it to make their nests welcome those who arrive at the marine reserve of the Isola Gallinara from the sea straight away. These are unique emotions, which you can experience on one of the many trips proposed by Golfo Paradiso, Navigazione Golfo dei Poeti and the Consorzio Liguria Via Mare. For those who want to combine the pleasure of good food with the relaxing experience of a cruise, the maritime service of Tigullio offers the Tigullio Wine Cruise: a pleasant wine and food excursion of the Gulf during which you can taste typical products.
