Portofino Weather and Climate for Tourists
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.

The sea temperatures around Portofino are warm from May through October.

Places to stay in Portofino are relatively expensive, even for the pricey Italian Riviera, but the Belmond Hotel Splendido is top rated for a hotel with a view over the yacht harbor.

    Video footage from above Rapallo: This seaside resort on the Italian Riviera – like nearby Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino – is the height of sophistication. But the mountains surrounding this area are rough and ready. Wild boars abound. Your intrepid reporter David Downie climbed the trekking trails into the mountains northwest of town and looked back down on Rapallo and its glitzy marina, full of the motor-yachts of millionaires.

  • Genoa’s Port and Medieval Alleys [343]

    Genoa was made to be seen from the Mediterranean and entered by sea. The best way to arrive is to take a ferry boat ride from the harbor or arrive by cruise ship. The second best way is to walk from Porto Antico—the old harbor—to the end of the piers or the Lanterna, a lighthouse that’s about 800 years old.

    Look back at old Genoa and be amazed.
