Famous village in the world

"La Piazzetta" and the Park

Portofino Park, protected since 1935, offers scenarios and landscapes among the most celebrated in the world. In a few steps you go from the fresh woods of the northern slope to the sunny Mediterranean world over the cliffs. The Park houses one of the largest concentrations of Mediterranean flora, a remarkable variety of birds and invertebrates, as well as important historical-architectural testimonies. A network of over 80 km of trails allows walks and excursions of varying length and difficulty.
