Staying in Santa Margherita is less expensive than staying in Portofino. It is an easy paced town, with lots to see along the sea shore, and a pleasant market if you follow the signs to the centro storico. Make the walk to Portofino, and see...More

It’s just a gorgeous little town that along the Italian coast line. We just stayed here for one night but I wish we would’ve stayed longer. So picturesque, it looks like it’s from a movie. Beautiful beautiful beautiful

Just a beautiful village. Much nicer than Portofino and half the price. There are many restaurants and bars to chose from. I kept going back to the Miami bar and the restaurant Da Gennaro. The beach has pebbles and no sand. The water is crystal...More
