Portofino Port offers visitors the very best of the Italian Riviera. From the pastel-coloured buildings framing the harbour, sapphire-coloured sea to its gorgeous climate, Portofino is simply out of this world. A picturesque place, Portofino is rich in history too. So, as you can imagine, there are plenty of historical buildings to visit. The ‘Chiesa di San Giorgio', is just one of them. Built as a refuge for the Roman soldiers devoted to Mithras (the Persian god), it's just a 10 minute walk uphill. Venture a little further along, and you'll discover ‘Castello Brown' which was made to fend off the assaulting Turks. And, from inside these castle's walls, you can take in the most stunning view of its garden, and the town and port beneath.
Portofino is famous for its ""macrame lace,"" which is created by women in the village and surrounding towns. You'll discover this fine lace in many of the shops here. Another popular purchase is ‘Trofie' – this handmade pasta is a regional favourite. Portofino is also where you can buy high-end clothing – like ‘Dior', ‘Armani ‘and ‘Gucci' – it's a shopper's paradise.
The local currency is the Euro. Portofino is 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +1).
