When you think of a small Italian fishing village a few things may come to mind; quaint buildings, rustic boats bobbing in the water and friendly people strolling through the cobblestone streets.  This is exactly what you will find in this picturesque Italian town.  But along with these somewhat cliche assumptions you will also discover boutique shops, extravagant restaurants, the jet set travelers and yachts bigger than some homes.  Portofino has been the destination for the rich and famous since the end of the 19th century, and still today it plays host to some impressive people.  But with the wealth and sophistication also comes tradition and old world charm.  Travel to Portofino and catch a glimpse of a chic and dreamy Italian seaside getaway.
