Situated at the end of the Portofino peninsula, this small fishing village consists of colourful houses clustered around a natural harbour. A road off the pretty piazzetta slopes gently down to the sea front and is lined with exorbitantly priced "gentlemen yachtsmen-type" café-restaurants, while top international luxury brands show off their wares in the neighbouring streets. The walk to the lighthouse is magnificent.
