Parco di Portofino was such a fresh, green relief after the crowds and traffic in Genoa. It’s peaceful, quiet, and the views are spectacular. We did some leisurely hikes, stopped to admire the scenery...

Defined by many as the world’s most beautiful seaside town, picturesque Portofino intoxicates those who visit the northwestern coast of Liguria. This coastline is part of the Italian Riviera, which extends upwards from the luscious region of Tuscany to the Italian-French border and includes the enthralling rocky stretch, Cinque Terre. Centuries ago, Portofino was a traditional, small, secluded fishing village. Now, with only about 500 permanent residents, Portofino is pocket-sized and barely qualifies as a town. However, its streets and surrounding wilderness come alive in the warm summer months.
From June to September, visitors who want to sunbathe and relax in one of Italy’s most charming places flock to Portofino. The tranquil harbor is filled with gleaming sailboats and larger luxury vessels. The shore is lined with rows of quaint fisherman houses that vary in cheerful pastel colors and stylish bars and cafes. Sailing, diving, hiking, and exploring the coastline, which is filled with exquisite beaches and enchanting villages, are favorite pastimes. Hikers and birdwatchers delight in the immense natural diversity found in the area’s nature reserve, ‘Parco Naturale Regionale di Portofino.’ The vibrantly green and protected Regional Natural Park of Portofino is full of indigenous trees, plants, and animals, hiking trails, and incredible views of the gorgeous gulf and blue sea below.

Portofino is a small town on the Riviera coastline of Genoa, Italy. It is not far from the Cinque Terre. It is not as famous in Italy as the Cinque Terre but is a famous Italian town. It is known as the first Mediterranean town.
is said to be a frequent encounter with famous politicians from all over the world. The colorful houses are surrounded by turquoise coves, backed by mountains and greenery, facing the blue waters of the sea. The exterior walls of the house are painted with bright colors, pinkish green, pinkish yellow and light brown, which are in sharp contrast with the green hills and blue-green seawater. Sea, sails, green trees, boulders, bright flowers, small bars in the seaside cliffs complement each other.
The town is actually very small and can be turned over in an hour. The meaning of the rich town is that I can't easily consume civilians there. Prices are about two to three times that of other Italian cities.
