Small fishing village, Portofino, in Liguria, is also one of the most popular resorts on the Italian Riviera, attracting the international jet set. Famous for its colorful houses, natural creek, and pretty harbor.
What to do ? Take a walk in the center, drink a glass of Giancu de Purtufin, a local wine on the Piazzetta, visit the many shops of local crafts, buy locally made lace.
To avoid ? In summer, the village is not easily accessible by car and too crowded.
To see ? The Barefoot Contessa with Ava Gardner and Humphrey Bogart, by Joseph Leo Mankiewicz, some scenes were shot in Portofino.
