Layover – Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino #Wanderlust Wednesday

“Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures”

On route to Florence from Milan, I decided to add a layover in Portofino. I had stumbled upon some beautiful pictures of Portofino on Instagram, I just had to include it on my itinerary. I took a train from Como to Santa Margherita Ligure.

Santa Margherita Ligure is a great base and I found this town extremely charming with its brightly coloured house, harbour, beach and eateries.


Arriving in Portofino was surreal, I had read about why the town is loved and frequented by ‘VIP’s around the world. I understand why that is, Portofino is the “quintessential fishing village on the Italian Riviera”

It has a small habour, colourfully painted buildings and the ‘Piazzetta’ (small square) overlooking the sea.

Exploring the Italian Riviera was another Splendid Experience!
