From our Little French Trip we continued on into Italy for a short stop at Portofino, just south of Genoa. This is the Italian Riviera at its most luxurious, way back in 2001 I spent a couple of days on this coast walking the Cinque Terre coastal track. It was wonderful then and it’s equally striking today.

◄ Coming back down to earth the Church of San Giorgio also looks out on that postcard pretty harbor.
