SANTA MARGHERITA LIGURE:
Matching the Golfo del Paradiso on the western side of the Monte di Portofino headland is the Golfo del Tigullio on the eastern side, a broad arc of a bay. The gulf stretches 28 km from the rocks and inlets around Portofino and its friendlier neighbour Santa Margherita Ligure.
Straddling two inlets, Santa Margherita Ligure is a little seaside resort town that still has the dignified elegance of the 19th c., when it was developed; it is surrounded by villas with parks. The town is also famous for its watersports, sailing and diving. With addition to its beach bars and crystal-clear water, a Crucifixion by van Dyck in the church of San Michele may prove an added incentive for a visit.
Portofino is a small Italian fishing village and tourist resort located in the province of Genoa on the Italian Riviera. There is no escaping the beauty of Portofino, tucked into a protected inlet surrounded by lush cypress and olive clad slopes, yet it manages to be both attractive and off-putting at the same time. The village has been effortlessly drawing in Europe’s jetset royals, filmstars and other glitterati since the dolce vita days. The village lies at the end of a narrow winding road 5 km south from Santa Margherita Ligure. The main sights of Portofino includes: the Castello Brown, the Church of San Martin (12th century), the church if St. George (housing some saints' relics) and the Oratory of Santa Maria Assunta, in Gothic style. The very nice Piazzetta by the harbour is lined with cafe and restaurant tables; a lovely place to relax with a drink and watch the boats go in and out of the port.
