Perched on the northern end of the Italian Riviera, just 25 miles south of Genoa, Portofino is a luxurious seaside village known for its colorful architecture and bustling, yacht-filled harbor. Wander the Piazzetta, lined with a mix of high-end shops and local boutiques. Nearby, restaurants serve freshly caught seafood dishes, a mainstay of the local culinary scene. The Mediterranean is more than just a pretty backdrop—hidden treasures abound beneath the sea. On snorkeling and scuba diving excursions, keep your eyes peeled for underwater statues and decades-old shipwrecks. If you’re up for a drive, the five pastel-hued towns of Cinque Terre—arguably the most famous villages along the Italian Riviera—are a 90-minute drive away.
