Portofino is a beautiful resort that has long been the home of the rich and the famous. Originally a billet for Genoa's merchant seamen, by the turn of the twentieth century it was a quiet, though very beautiful, fishing village. To add to its mystique, Portofino has a history buried in myth.
Once named Portus Delphini - Port of Dolphins, due to the large number that frolicked in the Tigullian Gulf. Portofino has been recreated as the ‘Portofino Bay Resort’ at the Universal Studios in Florida. Discovered by German and British holidaymakers in the 1920s, meant that by the 1950s tourism had taken the place of the fishing boats. Portofino thus became a favourite destination with Princess Grace, Richard Burton and Liz Taylor. Set within an area of stunning natural beauty, the protected Parco Naturale Regionale di Portofino, enables the town to remain the place where the rich and the famous repeatedly return to berth their luxury yachts.
