Portofino is absolutely beautiful, with it’s crystal clear water and bright colored buildings. Everyone goes gaga for Cinque Terre, but I really thought this little place takes the cake. In terms of things to do and see, no- there isn’t much. But in terms of beauty and crystal blue water… ding, ding, ding, THIS IS THE WINNER.
Look at the views as we were walking over to the beach. Woweeeee
The railings we were standing in front of led down to rocks that lined the water where there were lots of people sunbathing and cliff-jumping. It was beautiful, but I’m sure those rocks were super hot. We parked ourselves on the public beach, since the private one cost a pretty penny (70 Euros for two people). But hey, the public one was fine 😉
Side note, but related: On that day, we had NINE sandwiches with us plus a salad. I ate…maybe two? And Luis ate the rest. My friends and I were joking that girls would pack maybe 1-2 sandwiches each, and boys want to pack 7+. How??
Portofino was, hands down, my favorite stop on the trip. Thanks to Luis’ recommendation, we were able to see a beautiful place that I had never heard of. It’s a must-see!!! But bring an umbrella 😉
