1. from Portofino to Santa Margherita on foot 45 min. (just enjoy walking along the seashore) then you can visit Villa Durazzo in SM, back by boat. There are regular ferries and buses. Bus stop in Portofino is situated next to the church, not far from the main piazza.

2. the region above Portofino is worthy to explore /hiking 2-3 hours, depending on route taken

3.or go from Portofino to San Fruttuoso by boat. There is a small beach, visite San Fruttouso abbey, have a good seafood

4. or just enjoy Portofino seaside resort town /San Giorgio church, castle Brown, the 20 min walk to the lighthouse and restaurants, Botanical garden.
