Location Summary
Portofino is a classic everyone-must-go-there-once holiday destination. No new houses have been built since 1935, making Portofino a gem of such shimmering polish that over the years it has dazzled everyone from Clark Gable to Grace Kelly, Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman. This typical Ligurian fishing village has pretty little coloured houses dotted all around the harbour and main square. In spite of its notoriety, Portofino still maintains today the atmosphere of ancient maritime traditions, craftmanship, colours and perfumes, that still today captivates illustrious travellers enchanted by its beauty.

The Cinque Terre is a little corner of Liguria where generations have worked to create this monument in landscape architecture, represented by the steep terraces sloping down the sea and picturesque fishing villages. Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore are the five villages that give this region its name, each with its own historical features.
