Port Description

Portofino, Italy

This fine port on Italy's swank Riviera attracts the international elite, movie stars, and those who just love to inhale the floral-scented air. Hillside homes from another century fan upward from the heavenly harbor between the boughs of eucalyptus and cypress trees. For the best views, climb to the nature reserve at Monte Portofino, hit the beach at Paraggi, or find the hidden staircase behind the Church of San Giorgio, which leads to a fairy-tale castle. By the cove, the throngs sip sodas at sidewalk cafes and shop for the latest fashions in the chic boutiques.
