Creating vacation at a time!

Portofino is on the Italian Riviera located 22 miles from Genoa, 3 1/4 miles south of Santa Margherita Ligure, 160 miles from Milan and 301 miles from Rome.   There is a road runs between Santa Margherita Ligure and Positono and there is also a ferry from Santa Margherita that goes there.  It became famous when celebrities discovered the small town.
