Whilst cruising around the French and Italian Riviera on the luxurious Wind Surf Yacht we stopped in Portofino, where we disembarked and made to the shore. This is what I saw…

If you are looking for a nice relaxing and quieter place to chill out then Portofino on the Italian Riviera is a place worth checking out.

Normally I wouldn’t go out of my way to cruise along the French and Italian Riviera coastline, however, seeing’s as I was on a work getaway with my husband’s company I decided to disembark the luxury Wind Surf Yacht and check out Portofino.

Here around the cobbled square, you can see boats as far as the eye can see making it a great place for coffee. A few of us sat and enjoyed this view whilst having some coffee. Then we set foot and wandered around this little fishing village to explore some more. There’s a little bit of shopping which can be done so bring the credit card! There’s some very nice jewellery, bling bling! Then once you’ve shopped till you’ve dropped you can have a wonderful meal along the water. For those who are a little more energetic you can explore the area by foot if you want to see some incredible views (we didn’t but friends did and said it was great!).

My Overview of Portofino

The locals seem pretty relaxed and easy going. I would say if you are wanting to stop and do nothing but relax this is the place for you. I didn’t spend more than a few hours here but I’m glad I got to see it. I hope you enjoy your time here too!

Until next time I travel, I see, I share... This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
