Portofino Harbour, Italy

Portofino Harbour, Italy, originally uploaded by Andrew Crump.

When we were in Genoa, we went to the world famous Aquarium they have there. We did not take the excursion from the cruise line, because we wanted to walk around Genoa for a while, then went to the aquarium. Wow, it was worth it, I was happy.

Afterwards, Wife wanted to see Portofino, because she had heard so much about it. It's about a half hour from Genoa. I didn't thing we would be able to make it ( the cruise line only allowed one excursion a day), but Wife and the Father/Daughter team that we were with talked me into it. So we got on the train (4 euros each-return trip) and went to Santa Margherita Ligure where we caught a bus (1 euro each way) to Portofino. We spent about two hours walking around Portofino and then reversed the trip to Genoa and the ship. Made it back 15 minutes before it left the port.

What a great day, I would say one of the best of the trip. I definatly want to spend more time in Santa Margherita Ligure, what a beautiful town.
