Portofino, a town barely two kilometres wide, is well known for the jet-set that inhabits its lovely streets. It has been nicknamed the most beautiful Piazzetta – or square – in the world because of its small size. The entire town sizzles with excitement and magic. You never know who you will bump into when you leave your accommodation and it is one of the few places in the world where the piers with their luxury yachts in the marina are a mere stone’s throw from the centre. At the marina you can also see local fishermen mending nets and soak up the lovely atmosphere of the town. Other relaxing pastimes could include shopping, or simply strolling among the colourful homes.
