While away the hours in this discreet, luxury hideaway, where humble fishing boats bob next to superyachts, and refined hotels perch on rugged cliffs. Its privileged location on the peninsula heightens its exclusivity – no surprise that stars like Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor used to holiday here in the sixties. Extend your pampered adventure in Cinque Terre and La Spezia.
Cinque Terre and La Spezia
After your sojourn in Portofino, continue to dodge the pesky tourist crowds on the 18km strip of unspoilt coast that makes up Cinque Terre. Carved into the rocky cliffs are five breathtaking villages, where clusters of colourful houses overlook gorgeous turquoise water. Circle the peninsula to visit the province of La Spezia, packed with hidden gems. Then head south to fabulous Naples and Capri.
Experience authentic Italy in lively Naples. Wedged between majestic mountains and beautiful coastline, Naples is famous for being the birthplace of pizza; today it serves up exquisite cuisine and excellent nightlife. While you’re here, you may as well pop over to the picturesque island of Capri. Then keep the party going in Amalfi, another hotspot for the beaux monde.\
Soak up the sun on an island that attracts the likes of George Clooney and David Geffen. Capri is a staple for the rich and famous, celebrated for its incomparable beauty, lively nightlife, and glamorous atmosphere. Consider dropping anchor at nearby Amalfi and Positano for an action-packed yacht charter experience.
Sun-drenched piazzas, magical
grottos and panoramic vistas make the petite hilltop town of Amalfi a
treat for the senses. When life gives you lemons, drink limoncello,
which the Amalfi Coast is rather famous for. If small, hidden gems
are your thing, you’ll want to add elite destinations like Positano
and Portofino to your itinerary as well.
The Amalfi Coast’s most sophisticated and costly town, Positano’s astounding natural beauty and high-end hotels have always attracted the upper echelons of society. Indulge in some Italian gelato as you wander the winding streets, or lounge on the secluded Fornillo beach. Your bespoke itinerary should also include nearby Capri and Amalfi town.
