Discover all that Italy has to offer by visiting some of the most beautiful coastal ports and beaches in the Mediterranean, Portofino and the Ligurian coast.
For decades, yacht charterers have loved the Portofino marina in Italy. Portofino was once a charming fishing village on the east coast of Italy in the Mediterranean. Its popularity as a picturesque and colorful city has now made it a popular port of call for luxury yachts, sailboats and rental boats. Portofino is a small town of cobbled streets, framed by silver hills, centuries-old olive groves. From the top of the hill, the views of the harbor and the coast are breathtaking. Cafes, boutiques and ice cream parlors flock to the harbor square from where you can watch the superyachts come and go. The coast that surrounds Portofino and the city itself offers a myriad of pleasures to travelers.
