Portofino has long been one of the playgrounds for the rich and famous to park their yachts while cruising around the Italian Riviera in the summer. The tiny village surrounding the port is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Italy. It is a tiny place and the road into it is very narrow and windy and cars must be parked at the village entrance. In summer the queues are long with entry restricted to a certain number of cars. A cruise around the coast is the best way to see this area. Portofino is full of designer boutiques and the place to be seen in your Sunday best. However the pink and yellow houses add up to a picture perfect place to visit.
