The 7 day French Italian connection charter
Day 1 – Genoa to Portofino
Land at Genoa Airport and join the boat in Genoa port by limousine, approximately 30 minutes drive.
Settle in on board and cruise to Portofino and spend the rest of the day ashore, exploring this world-famous yet quaint fishing port and its attractive neighbours, Santa Margherita and Rapallo. Another possibility is to spend the day in Sestri Levante.
Unlike Portofino, Sestri has had very little publicity and is a very pleasant and relaxing town with good restaurants, hotels and more important perhaps, an excellent shopping quarter. Return to Portofino for the evening, dining perhaps at the Pitosforo restaurant, or at the more renowned Hotel Splendido which overlooks the port.
