diana marina to portofino by bus, train or boat  (4 Answers)

Is there anybody out there who could help us. We are going to Diana Marina in August and wish to take a day trip to Portofino by public transport as we have been led to believe driving our own cars is not really an option and you won't see the best of the countryside. We are willing to travel by bus, train or boat and need to do it all in one day. Has anyone ever taken this trip or has anyone advice on the best way to do it with approximate prices.
Thanks for your help.

Which is easier to travel to Portofino? from Milan or from Rome?  (8 Answers)

Hi! I am planning a tour to Italy. I have been to most of the tourist spots like Colosseum, Pisa etc. but want to explore the outskirts this time 'round.

Pls. advise me from where should I plan to take my own tour to Portofino...from Milan or from Rome, and are there any local tours to Portofino from Milan or Rome? Any help and reply would be appreciated. Thank you so much.

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · January 26, 2010
artwork  (1 Answer)

I visited Portofino in October. There was a small gift/art shop set back from the pedestrian walkway, on the right when walking up from the harbour. The top of the walkway had bollards restricting traffic access. When I got to the shop it was closed temporarily, in the window there was a large photograph of water running over stones. I would love to know the name of the shop to enquire about the price of the artwork. I know these details are scant but I was only there briefly on a short trip. Please could anyone help?
