What To Do?
You can explore the entire coast stopping by its fishing villages, beaches and seaside resorts. Visit the Cinqueterre with its five villages, walking from village to village or hopping on the train, which connects them all. You can also rent a boat to sail across the coast and explore the beautiful coves accessible only by sea.
You can drive to Genoa (30 min by car), declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO because of its historical buildings. Drive to Milan (2 hrs) to visit the magnificent city and shop in the Fashion Capital of the world! Portofino is the jewel of this area, with its picture perfect, yacht-dotted bay. Have lunch in the Piazzetta and admire the jetsetters coming off their boats for a drink.
