Discover Portofino

Via Roma 2, 16034 Portofino, Genoa, Italy

Portofino harbour exists within a paradisiacal fold of the Italian Riviera. It is a harbour in every sense of the word. The coastline curves in on itself, wrapping the lapping waves and lazily bobbing yachts in an embrace. Grand candy-coloured houses stand guard along the shore. Here in this little nook of the Italian Riviera, you’re protected from the elements, shaded from the wide world, free to sink into the sweet life… and what a sweet life it is.

A bubbling energy swirls around the town’s main piazza. You’ll find Splendido Mare here, at the heart. This is a place to see and be seen. You could sit back and observe the glamorous lives of all who gather here, or you could dive-in and take part. At our luxuriously laidback boutique hotel, Portofino is the paradise you want it to be.
