The small village of Portofino is very crowded, especially during the summer season. We always suggest to reach our base by public transport, thus avoiding the stress of traffic and parking! Here are some suggestions on how to reach us:
The train station of Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino is reachable from Milan (2 h 30 min), from Genoa (45 min), from Pisa (2 h). You may then continue walking, by bus, boat or taxi.
You can easily rent a bike – normal and electric bike – in our new outdoor sports center in Santa Margherita Ligure.
Rental of bicycles – and other equipment – is by reservation, find out how to book your equipment!
With the n. 82 line from the train stations of Santa Margherita Ligure or from Rapallo.
From Portofino: approx. 10 min.
From Santa Margherita Ligure: approx. 30-40 min.
From Camogli: through the trails of the Portofino Park.
There are two lines serving the promontory of Portofino. From Santa Margherita Ligure you can reach Portofino with the Consorzio Marittimo del Tigullio.
From Genoa, Recco or Camogli, instead, the boat service Golfo Paradiso, embraces the route to San Fruttuoso, from where you can then take the ferries of the Consorzio Marittimo del Tigullio to Portofino.
Highway A12 (Genova – Rosignano), exit in Rapallo, continue towards Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino until the bay of Paraggi. Passed the inlet of the bay, after 200m on the left you will find a sandy beach where Outdoor Portofino is located. This area has very limited parking areas, especially during summertime.
In Paraggi there is a paid parking lot, but we suggest to reach our office by alternative means (bike, bus, boat) or walking from Portofino (about 10 minutes) or S. Margherita Ligure (about 40 minutes). Given the problems of parking and traffic, for those who decide to reach us the car, play in advance!
