Once in Portofino is not a large city and most hotels and beaches are a short walk from the harbor. The most impressive thing about Portofino is the lifestyle, so running off and "seeing the sights" probably won't be your number one priority when you plan your trip; the view from the harbor or any of the surrounding beaches is unforgettable and one could spend the entire day marveling at it.
Castello Brown is a 16th century castle/fort, once used for the area's defense, but now primarily a museum with a fantastic view of the harbor and the Mediterranean Sea. The church of St. Martin (Divo Martino) is around the corner from the harbor and is a quaint, stylish little chiesa from the 11th century. It's definitely worth taking a casual stroll around it.
From Portofino you can visit several of the small regional towns like Paraggi or San Fruttuoso; although you can rent a private boat at your disposal. In San Fruttuoso Bay you can try and see the sculpture of Christ of the Abyss. The easiest way to reach San Fruttuso is by sea (if weather conditions allow). You can choose a public boat or rent a Private boat. It's an unforgettable experience and definitely the best way to move around the area (our Booking Office will be glad to advise bespoke solutions). If you have sensible footwear you can also experience a walking tour there via a 90 minute hike (2.5-3 hours return).
If you have some days off, you can also visit the Acquarium on Genoa (30 km from Portofino) - the biggest one in Europe - and walk around the port streets. There are a lot of museum and historical buildings.
If shopping is on your agenda you'll happily be able to peruse the latest designs from Armani, Gucci, Pucci, Ferragamo and Zegna; if you aren't looking for runway attire, there are also several boutiques with unique items, including one with lovely Murano glass jewelry
