Portofino and Santa Margherita


Okay, so when I started the documentation on this trip, I remember specifically telling you I wasn’t going to do a blow by blow of each day. Turns out that may not have been completely accurate.

As I go through the photos trying to pare down what I’m going to show you, I can’t seem to find a place to NOT highlight. Each stop was so interesting, and so fun to photograph, I can’t imagine keeping the best ones to myself. So please bear with me. If I’m boring you to tears, I apologize – maybe take a break from me for awhile?

So. On to Portofino.

Portofino is a small, picturesque fishing village turned resort area located on the Italian Riviera. The brightly colored buildings lining the bay are home to a wide variety of shops, restaurants and cafes, making it a great place to wander.

It was here I discovered the Israeli jewelry artist, Ayala. Her work is my latest obsession! And in case you’re wondering, yes, I indulged.

From Portofino, we took the ferry across the bay to Santa Margherita, another cute resort town.

Back on the ship we had a glass of my favorite wine, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio (no relation to the village, but it was still fun…)

  1. AW… looks great. We didn’t get to dock there this past trip due to weather, but I’m definitely going to try again.
