If you are considering a stylish wedding in Italy, a Wedding in Portofino is the perfect choice. Even back in Roman Times Portofino was called the world's most charming port. And, 19th century sweethearts called it the perfect romantic hideaway. Since that time great literary figures, show business stars, artists and the powerful from all over the world have found here something more than a refuge. It has become an elegant and secluded salon, as simple as a fishing village, as lavish as a backdrop designed for a great film.
Much of Portofino's appeal is due to its magnificent location cozily tucked into the side of a small wooded promontory on the blue Mediterranean Sea.
|Houses dot the hillside above the village and the resort is in an idyllic location on the harbor, where the water reflects all the pastel-washed little houses huddled in a semicircle around the "piazzetta", that slopes down and ends in the water of the harbour. Along the quay and the Pier, the boutiques, the shops, the bars, and the restaurants act as a frame.Just turn a corner, step away from the bustling streets and enter into a world of immemorial peace. The experience of walking on the Mount of Portofino is unforgettable.
It is a perfumed garden, with restful shade, sudden vistas of the cobalt ocean stretching out beyond the greenery, a surprising varied panorama of colours.
|Here is also a superb castle with a huge park, ideal setting for your wedding reception.
Weddings in Portofino are made for walking and no corner is without charm. But before you loose yourself in the tempting byways and boutiques sip a glass of local wine at a bar, enjoy the Mediterranean sun and ….. keep your eyes peeled - you just might see a familiar face bronzing on the deck of a fancy yacht!
