Live La Dolce Vita in Portofino and beyond

Be charmed by picturesque villages and an amazing stretch of coast

This is a private tour of the picturesque villages in the heart of Portofino Natural Park. Accompanied by your expert private guide you’ll take a walk in the elegant village of Santa Margherita Ligure with its painted facades, lush gardens, villas and the picturesque fishing harbor. From there, you’ll reach Portofino with a panoramic trip by ferry along the beautiful coast dotted with fancy villas.

Portofino is a small fishing village which is now the center of élite tourism. Arriving by boat is the best way to admire the unique beauty of the arch of colorful houses that crown the tiny port. You’ll be enchanted by the lovely “piazzetta”, the small square overlooking the sea plenty of elegant restaurants and glittering boutiques.

Then you’ll take again the ferry along the wild coast of Portofino Marine Reserve and reach San Fruttuoso, a medieval abbey built right on the pebble beach, restored and protected by FAI, the Italian National Trust. San Fruttuoso can be reached only by boat or on foot and preserves all its untouched beauty with just a few fishermen’s houses and a couple of nice restaurants on the beach.

You’ll fall in love with these unique towns!
