Church of San Giorgio

Molo Umberto I, 14-15, 16034 Portofino GE, Italy

Located at the top of Portofino’s promontory with sweeping vistas over the bay, this church dates back to 1154 and houses the relics of San Giorgio, which were brought to Italy during the Crusades. A short walk along the narrow pathway from the piazzetta leads to the church, which features a lovely courtyard and spectacular views over the sea. Along the way, souvenir stands sell local crafts and laces for those looking for examples of Ligurian artisanship to take home.
