Departure & Return
What To Expect
See the pastel hues of the waterfront buildings as you enter the popular resort spot. Head to the central Piazzetta, and take in the turquoise waters of the harbor, bustling with boats of every shape and size.
Part ways with your driver and enjoy some free time to explore, stopping at the Castello Brown, dating back to the 16th century, or at the Church of St George, home to the sacred relics of Portofino's patron saint. Discover the old castle and the baroque Church of San Giorgio and take in unbeatable views of the Mediterranean coastline.
If you’re looking to check out some Italian fashion, peruse the local boutiques brimming with clothing and jewelry. Consider relaxing with some lunch at a café before reuniting with your driver.
Then, relax with a smooth ride to Santa Margherita Ligure. Nestled between Rapallo and Portofino, see how this ancient fishing village has maintained its old-world charm. Stroll past the fishermen’s houses and admire the landscape of the Ligurian coast.
After your day out on the Riviera, conclude with transportation back to the Genoa port.
