Portofino, Italy



Portofino is a perfectly coiffed, charming fishing village and seaside resort on the Italian Riviera. Designer boutiques and art galleries line the streets. Portofino exudes an air of serenity and is one of the most photogenic ports in the Mediterranean. The small, picturesque harbor is well known, above all, for its pastel painted buildings that line the shore. The Belmond Hotel Splendido is heaven on earth. The peaches and cream villa sits high on the hillside above the port. The glorious terrace and swimming pool are delightful.
