Portofino harbour.

Portofino harbour.

Haunt of the idle rich. Portofino is exactly what the "Italian Riviera" conjured up in my mind before I went.

When we arrived, an enormous gin palace (motor boat) dominated the harbour and the cafe society guests were promenading in their high fashion and even higher heels (not on board of course!).

At around 5pm the light was perfect for photography, but time was limited, as the shadows lengthened and the light vanished. Apparently it's floodlit at night, but the tourist boats stop running at 6pm, so we missed that treat.
