Get your climbing exercise walking up to this church. Beautiful views of the Med. The church itself is nice but could use a little paint touch ups. Behind the church is a fairly large cemetery, with lots of the crypts built into the side of...More

The view of both Portofino and the sea is a must from the high vantage point of this church. A definite must do while in Portofino.

A very small, very interesting church, just a short walk from the harbor. A great place to visit, with great views.

the Church of San Giorgio is a beautiful little thing and everyone should go there - the thing is that it's at the top of the hill so don't rush the walk up and enjoy the views as you go. Once you're there it's idyllic...More
