Portofino is too commercialised and attracts hordes of tourists. For a more relaxing time visit Santa Margarita 1.80 Euro one way; 15 minute bus ride along the coast.

We did the 3 pearls and it was very good. Saw Portofino, Santa Margarita and Rapello. Portofino is breathtaking and moved me to tears. Pulling into port and opening the drapes to see colored houses, castles and mansions enveloped in greenery was something I’ll never forget.

Our excursion to Cinque Terre (with Marta) was the best! A must for every traveler! A beautiful and totally unique experience. I'd do it again every time. Wonderful.

Simply beautiful. So picturesque but would need a lottery win to stay longer than two hours. Took the walk to the lighthouse for amazing views of the bay
