After spending the morning in Genoa (birthplace of Columbus), we checked into the Lido Palace Hotel (overlooking the promenade) in the seaside resort of Santa Margherita.
I took this photo while waiting to board the boat taking us on a cruise to Portofino . . .
Within minutes of leaving the harbour, the sky threatened rain . . .
However, as the boat neared Portofino, the front cleared and we enjoyed a lovely visit.
I was amazed at how small the harbour was in Portofino.
Mega yachts were docked side-by-side with small fishing boats and dinghies for sailing.
