88 Portofino Cruise Reviews

The ship docked in Santa Margherita Ligure. We took the water ferry to Portofino. What a beautiful place! We had lunch at a cafe, walked around the port and walked to a beautiful church on the hill. This was one of my favorite ports.

A small very colourfull village, rather busy with tourists of course. We had to tender to go ashore. Easy to walk around with lots of terraces for drinks and food.

The sea was a bit rough for the tenders and we gave up waiting in line after an hour, shame as it looked a lovely place to visit.

We actually docked in Santa Margherita. This little town, next to Portofino, is gorgeous. We walked, shopped and ate lunch in this little village. Great day.

Our excursion was canceled and we ventured out on our own to the light house -- long walk but worth it.

We walked up to the Castle and all the way out to lighthouse. Beautiful scenery and lots of cute little shops in the town. We also took the public bus to San Margerita (sp?) and went to the beach. The beach is pebble rather than sand and being there in the middle of the day, many of the shops were closed for siesta. Read Less

Sea conditions unfavourable for tendering in Portofino. Ship docked in Genoa instead. We independently caught train and ferry to Portofino at a cost of £23 as we particularly wanted to see this idyllic port.

Portofino is beautiful and you can wander on your own without planning. You can dine or shop or look at signts or go to the beach by foot.
