Italian Riviera Lux with a yacht harbor and everything!

portofino weather and climate

by James Martin

Portofino was once an Italian Riviera fishing village with a picturesque harbor loaded with yachts and fronted by pastel-colored houses. It’s located in the Genoa province of Liguria. It is not a cheap place to hang around in, but makes a wonderful day trip from less expensive cities on the Ligurian coast.

Portofino offers the typical Mediterranean climate, with little rain in the summer and more in the fall and winter, October being the wettest month by far, and July the hottest, as you can see by the climate charts below.

  • Christopher Columbus and Genoa [20]

    Every Day is Columbus Day in Liguria. Columbus was from Genoa.

    Columbus’s journey was a feat of navigation, a demonstration not only of foolhardy confidence – the intrepid sea captain was sailing in the wrong direction, after all, if he hoped to reach India – but also of fearless entrepreneurialism. The goal was to find a short, safe passage toward riches.

  • The “Rock Villages” of Western Liguria Part Three [34]

    Apricale, one of the Western Riviera’s celebrated “Rock Villages,” has been around since the Bronze Age. Its Latin name (Apricus) means “sun-washed,” and, as you find out in warm weather, is all too apt. Some of the buildings in Apricale are 9th century, probably, but documents only go back to 1016. So, to be fair, villagers humbly look forward to celebrating a 1,000th anniversary soon.
