From either the port of Genoa or Savona we’ll drive towards Santa Margherita Ligure where we’ll take a boat to reach Portofino and begin the shore excursion.
First, lets visit the Church of Saint George, a Romanesque structure from which we can see beautiful views of the town. Inside we can discover the relics of the city’s patron saint, which according to folklore, were recovered by fishermen of Portofino, returning from the Crusades.
Next our Portofino shore excursion will check in at Castello Brown; now a museum and exhibition space situated atop the harbour. Built in 1557, this was an important fortress for Portofino, defending the city from attack until it was abandoned in 1815.
Purchased at the end of the nineteenth century by Sir Montague Yeats Brown, it underwent various architectural transformations such as raising the towers and the addition of a roof garden.
At the end of the Portofino shore excursion, we’ll head back to Santa Margherita Ligure and then drive back to port for boarding.
