Often called the "pearl of the Riviera," Portofino has long been fashionable to call "pompous," and today it is a very chic port to visit on a luxury yacht. Initially, it was a “gas station” for the merchant sailors of Genoa, by the beginning of the 20th century it was a quiet, albeit very beautiful fishing village. To add to this mystery, Portofino has a mythical color in its history.

Pliny the Elder claimed that the Romans founded the city, calling it Portus Dolphini, or Port of the Dolphins, due to the large number of these frolic animals in the Tigullian Bay.

Discovered by German and British tourists in the 1920s, by the 1950s, tourism had crowded out fishing boats. Thus, Portofino became a favorite for Princess Grace, Richard Burton and Liz Taylor , whose other favorite island is Ischia, also Italian. Situated in stunning natural beauty, this city today is a chic marina and offers exclusive boutiques, fine dining restaurants and coastal cliffs teeming with pastel colored villas.

“Interior” of the city

You can start a yacht strictly in the tiny “central part” of Portofino Marina, or anchor, or find a mooring ball inside the harbor, or anchor right at the entrance to the harbor of the National Park. In any case, docking requires a reservation in advance, which is reflected in the price. This, however, is the best of traditional Italian fishing villages with facades painted in all shades of earthly Tuscan color.

Take a stroll through the small streets and enjoy gorgeous shopping. Maybe have tea or sit in the garden, for example, at the Chuflay restaurant in Belmond Splendido Mare in the harbor, or have a drink on the terrace at the Belmond Spendido located high above the harbor on a hillside . Enjoy your meal in a small restaurant or simply soak up the atmosphere and life of this little piece of paradise from the stern of your yacht.
