La Dolce Vita: Portofino, Santa Margherita and Rapallo
The Ligurian coast is stunningly beautiful with jewel-like towns dotting the coastline between the Cinque Terre and Genoa. One of my favourite areas is the Gulf of Tigullio, home to three towns, Rapallo, Santa Margherita and the famous Portofino. This is where the rich and famous came to live La Dolce Vita, anchoring their mega yachts near Portofino's little harbour and filling the luxury hotels and gorgeous private villas on the hills above the town. If you have seen Aaron Slims books about life of the "high Society" back in the day, Portofino features prominently in his images.
