If you took the train here and want to go to Portofino taking the boat is the way to do it. Wonderful views and as quick as a taxi and a little less in cost.

Our tour group took this ferry from Santa Margherita to Portofino and had excellent deck seats providing a great shoreline view of the rugged coast and clinging homes. The boat is well appointed and there are restrooms but no other services.

When planning our trip to this area, we were almost ready to book a private boat just to arrive in Portofino "in style". That would have been way exagerating! The regular ferry that goes between the sea resorts does the same thing! You get to...More

We returned to Rapallo in early August, peak season for both international and Italian tourists, so we bought our ferry tickets at the Rapallo quay ticket booth ahead of schedule. We only had 4 hours available so we opted to view the Ligurian coast from...More

A wonderful route to Cinquá terre. Everything functions very accurately. Strictly on schedule. Friendly team. A spacious and clean ship with a powerful motor. No seasickness at all.
