Italian Riviera: Santa Margherita and Portofino

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.
