Founded by the Romans, this beautiful town in Genoa, north-west Italy, has a history that reaches back at least as far as the eleventh century. A natural harbour afforded Portofino prosperity as a fishing village, and today the town’s picturesque semi-circular waterfront, backed by a jumble of pastel pink or yellow houses above which a tree-clad hillside rises, provides visitors with a truly memorable image, and especially when approached by boat.
