Santa Margherita Ligure
Santa Margherita Ligure it's a small town on the coast, very pretty, especially now that the sun shines on the earth, in our hemisphere, for a longer period than a few months ago.
I recommend arriving here by car and then taking the ferry to Portofino, and here do not miss the exquisite focaccia, which I ate in the company of my boyfriend.
Once disembarked at Portofino, a splendid town, you will see the charm of the small gulf where more or less luxurious boats moor.

It was a wonderful walk, Portofino it is a charm; rightly, a sign placed just before reaching it says that it is one of the most beautiful places in Europe.
Portofino it is all gathered in a small port (Piazza Martiri dell'Olivetta), made famous by the “stylish little shops” and the multicolored houses.
The docked boats make it clear that it is also an elite place.
From the square, taking a flight of steps, you go up to Brown Castle, meeting the Church of St. George, a Mediterranean vegetation and glimpses of sea.
There is also the Parish of San Martino, whose dome can be seen from the main square.
