Portofino and Sante Margherita Ligure

Another sunny day, we were so lucky, so we drove out to Portofino, a beautiful but very small place, we were really pleased we went. We didn't do much, just had a coffee next to the sea, that was an expensive coffee, but worth the views! Walked round to the other side then climbed up towards the castle, which unfortunately was closed this particular day! Restoration work..Never mind.

We then carried on around to Sante Margherita Ligure. We didn't stay very long, as we were unsure about the parking, and couldn't find a meter, but we were lucky, got away with it.

It was a glorious sunny day, and worth the drive!


  1. I'm enjoying catching up on your posts - sounds like a fabulous holiday in Italy. I've never been there but hope to someday! The pics are great.

  2. Italy is a great and very interesting place to visit.

  3. I am enjoying your photos of Italy. I really like how you put the photos together like that.

  4. Beautiful collage, beautiful place!
    It interesting that the closer you are to the water, the more they charge for the coffee. It's as if they were personally responsible for the lovely views!

  5. looks fantastic... such a shame the castle was shut

  6. It all looks terrific. Send some sunshine back northward, could you?
