Photo of the Day – Portofino Italy

We docked in Genoa this morning at 9am and planned to use our time ashore to take a ferry over to Portofino Italy for the day. So we hopped on a ferry and headed out along the scenic Liguria coast. As you cruise into Portofino, the colorful buildings and luxurious yachts dotting the bay make you think you’ve stepped into a movie set. It almost doesn’t seem real. More like Italy brought to you by Walt Disney or something. But definitely not real. We spent the afternoon checking out the pricey shops, sipping wine with lunch and generally walking around in disbelief of our surroundings. Portofino Italy is one of those rare places that lives up to the hype. Tomorrow, we’ll be cruising to another Italian hot-spot with a lot of hype – Capri. Here’s hoping it also lives up to its sterling reputation. Ciao!

      Hi Danielle, thanks so much!! So jealous of your 3 weeks in Italy. I am doing all business travel for the next few months (gotta pay for those RTW trips!) but I’m planning another big trip to Italy as part of my 10th RTW trip next year. I can’t wait. So much to see there! You can do the RSS feed for my blog or if you subscribe I do send out occasional updates and have a free RTW trip planner. I don’t have a regular newsletter or anything (I figure people get enough e-mails!). But I really appreciate you taking the time to write, I love hearing from fellow travelers. I’ll be posting info about the itinerary for Round-the-World #10 in the next month or two. Happy travels to you!
