Portofino is a world in itself, within the universe that is the Italian (Ligurian) Riviera. Considered by many to be one of the eight wonders of the modern world, it sits like a gemstone in the middle of its unique bay. Or rather, a natural amphitheatre that has earned the reputation as the finest square in the world. This is the Riviera where scenes from the movie Dolce Vita were filmed, a romantic refuge for famous couples: Maria de Medici and Enrico IV of France, Liz Taylor and Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Humphrey Bogart… a place where such guests sought and still seek exclusivity and old-style glamour in a backdrop of boundless natural beauty. Portofino has lost none of its magical charm; it remains a place to find peace and be at peace with yourself. Total rest and relaxation is what life in this magical, pulsating land is all about. Wake up when you want, have a late breakfast, join a boat trip, put on elegant clothes for the soft evening light under the stars.
