Having been a beloved destination for wealthy and glamorous holidaymakers for over two centuries, the Italian Riviera is synonymous with luxury and elegance.
The jewel in the region's crown is the wonderfully picturesque town of Portofino, perhaps most famous for the pastel-coloured houses that line its cliffs. While the town's extremely photogenic scenery is its biggest draw, there are ample other reasons why Portofino holidays are so special.
Home to chic art galleries, an excellent dining scene and an array of designer boutiques, this charming seaside town offers plenty to keep day-trippers busy. Nature lovers will delight in discovering the abundant protected flora and fauna on Portofino tours, while those interested in exploring the region's history won't want to miss visiting the 16th-century fortress and museum. An evening stroll along the pretty harbour lined with luxury yachts makes a fitting end to a day spent exploring this beautiful former fishing village on one of our spectacular Portofino escorted tours.
There's plenty to look forward to when it comes to local cuisine in Portofino
Look out for traditional dishes such as minestrone soup, ravioli, and mushroom pie, as well as the plentiful fresh seafood on offer.
Fancy a meal with a view? Then be sure to book a table at La Terrazza in Hotel Splendido to be treated with breath-taking views over the bay. Here, anything that you eat starts will seem like the best meal you've ever had
For later in the evening, Portofino's piazzetta, or 'small square', is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or glass of wine al fresco while indulging in a spot of people watching next to the town's harbour.
