The Cinematic Soul of Portofino
Visit La Portofinese Eco-Farm
Start planning your ‘villeggiatura’ — an intrinsic Italian concept all about slow, sensuous summers.
Venture high onto the protected Mount of Portofino, just a short drive away with private transfer, to visit the verdant grounds of a self-sufficient eco-farm.
Discover tranquil olive groves, beehives and flourishing vineyards jutting towards the scenic Cala degli Inglesi. After exploring, enjoy a tasty picnic in a panoramic spot and feast on homemade focaccia, local Parma ham, salami, fresh fruits, farm-to-table vegetable pies, the farm’s own honey and cheese, craft beer and white wine.
Or taste these delicacies at a table prepared especially for you among the only vineyards with charming sea views in the area.Book your Ecofarm tour
A History of Merchants and Poets
In 1576, the Senate of the Republic of Genoa created a public roll of all the noble palaces in the city. Owners of these palaces were granted the honor of welcoming visiting diplomats, dignitaries and aristocrats to their homes. This unique model of hospitality was celebrated throughout Europe and is now available for our guests to sample. Explore two of Genoa’s ‘rolli’ and admire their breathtaking 16th-century architecture and interiors.
