CRUISE TO PORTOFINO, ITALY, TO ENJOY THE CHARM OF YESTERYEAR AND SPECTACULAR VISTAS

The old-fashioned seaside resort of Portofino, with its palm tree lined esplanade, has a harbour catering to small yachts and a fishing fleet that can be seem unloading its catch opposite the morning market. It is also a take off point for trips to the Cinque Terre, that rugged stretch of Italian Riviera coastline that features five quaint villages terracing down steep hillsides that overlook the sea. The difficulty of further development, and the fact that they are reachable by footpath, train and boat, but not by road, means there are no modern intrusions on the area’s old-world charm and spectacular views.
