Discover pocket-sized Portofino

3rd Jun 2016

The serene Ligurian coastline is the perfect antidote to a hedonistic cruise along the Côte d'Azur. Cruise from the port of St Tropez along the glamorous French Riviera before entering idyllic Portofino set on the vertiginous Italian Riviera.

The stretch of coastline between St Tropez and Portofino captivates all who cruise there. Made famous by the glitterati of the 1950s, the French Riviera exudes glamour, while the towns and villages strung between beaches and mountains have a quaint allure. 

From Monaco, an overnight cruise along the Italian coastline brings you to the beautiful harbour of Portofino. Built into the cliffs on the coast of Liguria, north of Tuscany, the area has managed to escape the hubbub of so many other coastlines thanks to its steep terrain, which limits access for vehicles. 

Behind the portside restaurants, the cobblestone streets are lined with boutiques, but for relaxation set your heights higher. Way up on the hillside is the exclusive Hotel Splendido (pictured behind Resilience), with views over the horseshoe-shaped harbour and bustling activity below. A former monastery, the Splendido boasts celebrity status having hosted the world's most coveted icons over the years. 

Beyond Portofino lies the Cinque Terre - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A gateway to this undiscovered National Park, spend a morning cruising the islands of Cinque Terre by tender.
