Portofino & Ligurian Coast Yacht Charter
For decades, luxury yacht charter groups to the Ligurian Coast - also known as the Italian Riviera - have adored the tiny and beautiful port of Portofino in Italy. As a commune of Genoa that has welcomed aristocrats, artists and celebrities over the centuries, Portofino provides a taste of the finer things in life, evolving with the times from a small fishing village on the rugged east coast and embracing its popularity while preserving its myriad charms.
Colourful buildings and quaint cobblestone streets meander away from the port that attracts sailing yachts and motor yachts alike. Cafes, boutique shops and gelatarias spill out into the harbour piazza from where you can watch the superyachts come and go, or take in the breath-taking views from on top of the hill.
The surrounding region is also a delight to culture-seekers, wine tasters, water sports fans and those looking to do nothing more than take life at their leisure and make the most of the services on board: The Cinque-Terre villages are carefully preserved UNESCO World Heritage Sites best accessed by water. Sperm whales and dolphins are regular visitors to the area that will be a magical encounter during any swim.
In Genoa, immerse yourself in the 16th Century palaces and residences of Via Garibaldi and at Forte dei Marmi guests can spoil themselves with lavish spas, Michelin-starred restaurants, high-end shops and a spectacular beach that stretches for miles.
5 quick reasons to visit Portofino & the Ligurian Coast:
Sensational UNESCO World Heritage Sites, fantastic snorkel and dive sites, delicious cuisine and wine tasting tours, golden sand beaches, incredible shopping
Portofino & the Ligurian Coast Yacht Charter Experiences
The Ligurian coastline is scenic and spectacular, combining colourful buildings with historic alleyways spilling over with vivid bougainvillea. At night, lantern-style electric lights create a romantic ambiance that makes the country of passion the perfect place to propose, have a honeymoon or celebrate an anniversary.
Sanremo or Genoa is the perfect place to begin, end or extend your luxury yacht charter due to its proximity to the French Riviera yacht charter grounds - another fantastic region to explore. In addition to Via Garibaldi, there are numerous theatres and residences to visit around Piazza Raffaele de Ferrari, including the Doge's Palace and Christopher Columbus's house.
Follow the curve of the coast to the empty beaches of Punta Chiappa on the cape, then on to Cala dell'Oro and most importantly the Portofino Marine reserve where the Christ of the Abyss statue is located: Snorkellers will be able to see the statue through the clear water, whereas Scuba divers can get up close and descend the 40m/131ft to see the marine life swimming around its base. On dry land there is also the historic abbey and museum Abbazia di San Fruttuoso, which discusses the lives of the prisoners held there and the graffiti that they left behind.
Further down the Italian coast you'll sail upon 'Cinque Terre' - A succession of five coastal villages, all with the same spectacular views of the seas. These villages are less expensive and less sophisticated than their more popular sister, Portofino, yet they are a spectacular sight from your luxury yacht and each has its own unique charms to accompany its clean and clear beaches. Hikers looking to spend extra time on land can take the famous and stunning walk along this coastal route that links the five towns.
From Cinque Terre, guests can choose whether to indulge in some contemporary delights in Forte dei Marmi and Livorno with its top quality restaurants, beach clubs and bars, or immerse yourselves further in nature at Porto Venere and Palmaria. Caparia and Elba are both situated within the Tuscany National Park and are perfect for water sports above and below the water: Octopus, starfish and a massive variety of fish can be found around the vivid sea corals, walls and caves. Further south is Civitavecchia, the gateway to Rome and her splendid architectural and historical gems.
The types of yacht charter available in Portofino & Cinque Terre Italy include all the main types such as large crewed motor yachts, sailing yachts, catamaran, sailboats, luxury yachts and off-course the ever increasing super yacht charter. Like most of the Mediterranean, the Italian yacht chartering season generally runs from April to the end of October. Just like the favourite hideaways of the rich and famous, Portofino and the Italian Riveria is enjoying ever increasing popularity and success as a destination for Western Mediterranean luxury yacht charters.

As the Italian Riviera continues to attract the world’s jet-set, the tiny elegant Portofino provides the perfect array of indulgences and experiences to keep seasoned sailors returning each season. Lying east of Genoa, the charming Portofino is undeniably the Italian Riviera’s elite yachting capital.
Carved out of the steep rock face, the seaside town is almost completely secluded from the mainland, creating the ideal hideaway for rest and relaxation. Sitting on its own little peninsula, this picturesque fishing village hides a deeply luxurious heart beneath the quaintness of its small harbour and mellowing houses. The beauty of Portofino is only amplified when arriving by the sea, allowing an enviable view of the brightly coloured houses huddled around the harbour.
Lifestyle Acting as a haven for inspired writers, the exclusive seaside town has attracted the likes of Guy de Maupassant and Truman Capote over its attractive history. Portofino has embraced the modern-day exclusivities of designer boutiques and gourmet cafes without sacrificing any of its 1950s charm that made it so popular with the rich and famous of the past. Gently washed by the waters of the harbour, Portofino’s small centre revolves around an uncomplicated piazza, boasting designer names like Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabbana, Pucci, Gucci and Missoni.
Famous Residents Reinforcing its reputation as an opulent hideaway, Giorgio Armani, Dolce and Gabbana, the chairman of Pirelli tyres and the owner of the Genoa football club keep villas in Portofino. Peace and relaxation are the desires of visitors here, where no loud noise is allowed after 10pm and bomb-proof security is well in force. The most adventure you will encounter in Portofino is that you can find on any one of the coast’s exhilarating walks.
Walking A hikers dream, Portofino offers an endless array of scenic walking paths, allowing those lucky enough to cross them to explore hidden hilltop villages and catch an unforgettable view of the coast’s sandy-white cliffs. Perhaps the most scenic and rewarding is hiking amongst the cliffs of the UNESCO-protected Cinque Terre villages. A delightfully quaint maze of tiny gardens, windswept views and shady seaside resting spots.
Mooring Portofino is a tender port, and tenders arrive at the yacht moorage in the centre of town. For those with yachts bordering on the larger scale however, anchoring off the coast of Santa Margherita is required, just over two miles south. This is no great shame however, as Santa Margherita itself is a beauty to explore, with terraced gardens and castles by the sea ensuring the trip is not a wasted one.

While away the hours in this discreet, luxury hideaway, where humble fishing boats bob next to superyachts, and refined hotels perch on rugged cliffs. Its privileged location on the peninsula heightens its exclusivity – no surprise that stars like Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor used to holiday here in the sixties. Extend your pampered adventure in Cinque Terre and La Spezia .

pORTOFINO – Top Yacht Charter Destination
From Monterosso al Mare in the Cinque Terra region, you will sail north to reach Portofino. The roll call of famous people who have visited Portofino over the past two centuries attest to its seductive charms. It includes Guy de Montpassant, the famous 19th-century French author, as well as German philosopher Nietzsche. Movie stars dazzled by its beauty and who often visited for its seclusion included Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Grace Kelly and Humphrey Bogart. Today you can spot the likes of musicians Rod Stewart, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Avril Levigne and Chad Kroeger, and actor George Clooney.
Portofino seems to encapsulate that elusive quality of authentic glamour and elegance that is so fascinating and appealing. It oozes understated chic: think upmarket party venues, live bands, luxurious boutiques, and the best of traditional and gourmet restaurants.
PORTOFINO – The Gourmet Experience
Taste mouth-wateringly fresh anchovies, pesto made of just-picked pine nuts, locally grown veal, fresh local herbs — the food offering in Portofino is out of this world. But before you tuck in, why not try a famed Bellini cocktail (a mixture of Prosecco sparkling wine and peach purée) on the terrace of the Hotel Splendido while delighting in the views of Portofino from above. It’s an absolute must when white peaches are in season.
Ristorante Stella, the waterfront establishment serving some of the freshest seafood you will ever taste, is famous for its fish ravioli and plump mussels. For the non-fish eaters, there are plenty of other delectable dishes, made with homegrown produce, to sample. Their wines, desserts, service and ambience are truly world-class.
Da u Batti, which is slightly off the beaten track, is the place to escape for some peace and quiet when the waterfront becomes congested in high season. Their Scampi a la Portofino with langoustines and giant prawns in their secret signature sauce are major drawcards.
If you share the belief that the best restaurants to visit in a tourist hotspot are the ones frequented by locals, then Da u Batti is the place to go. You’ll see a lot of Italians here, though it’s unlikely you’ll be the only tourist in the restaurant. Da u Batti does have something of a cult following.
The list of favourite Portofino restaurants would be incomplete without Tripoli: think sea view, pesto lasagna, fish skewers, pine nuts and anchovies… It’s a real feast for the eyes and the palate.
PORTOFINO – Things to Do
But Portofino is not just a catalogue of stunning views and foodie delights. Open-air picnics, natural wonders, bird watching and hiking are just a few of its other attractions. Did you know, for example, that it is located in the middle of a protected area, with abundant wildlife and lush vegetation?
Portofino is a natural masterpiece. The mountains are spectacular, the air is clear and invigorating, the water is aquamarine, and the bougainvillea blooms are vibrant pink and purple… It truly is a slice of paradise.
It offers rather unique attractions, too, such as the submerged statue of Christ, found 15m below the sea level. Christ of the Abyss is one of the major diving attractions in the area, as are its shipwrecks, fish and unique red corals. Scuba diving off Portofino not only leaves you awe-inspired but will overwhelm your senses.

River Cruise on Luxurious Radisson Boat
- Choose date
Equipped with ice-breaking technology, these huge fancy yachts are the only river cruisers running all year around. The round trip journey takes two and a half hours and floats past all the big sights like the White House, Novodevichy monastery and the Kremlin. There’s a large open air observation deck up top, while the main body of the ship houses a restaurant with a dance floor for a romantic post dinner dance. For a particularly romantic experience take one of the evening boats and admire the bright lights of the city skyline at night.
The most relaxing and picturesque tour that Moscow can offer: a great way to see the city center and its main attractions. This is a perfect alternative to exploring the city by car, if you only have time to do sightseeing during weekday rush hours.
Your English-speaking guide is eager to share every bit of their knowledge about the surrounding landscape, the architecture and historical details.
We conduct Moscow river tour on Radisson Flotilla boats all year around! It’s warm inside during winter months, while there’s air conditioning during hot summer days. You may also treat yourself to drinks, lunch or dinner on board (drinks and food are not included in tour price).

Cruising the Moskva River: A short guide to boat trips in Russia’s capital
There’s hardly a better way to absorb Moscow’s atmosphere than on a ship sailing up and down the Moskva River. While complicated ticketing, loud music and chilling winds might dampen the anticipated fun, this checklist will help you to enjoy the scenic views and not fall into common tourist traps.
How to find the right boat?
There are plenty of boats and selecting the right one might be challenging. The size of the boat should be your main criteria.
Plenty of small boats cruise the Moskva River, and the most vivid one is this yellow Lay’s-branded boat. Everyone who has ever visited Moscow probably has seen it.
This option might leave a passenger disembarking partially deaf as the merciless Russian pop music blasts onboard. A free spirit, however, will find partying on such a vessel to be an unforgettable and authentic experience that’s almost a metaphor for life in modern Russia: too loud, and sometimes too welcoming. Tickets start at $13 (800 rubles) per person.
Bigger boats offer smoother sailing and tend to attract foreign visitors because of their distinct Soviet aura. Indeed, many of the older vessels must have seen better days. They are still afloat, however, and getting aboard is a unique ‘cultural’ experience. Sometimes the crew might offer lunch or dinner to passengers, but this option must be purchased with the ticket. Here is one such option offering dinner for $24 (1,490 rubles).
If you want to travel in style, consider Flotilla Radisson. These large, modern vessels are quite posh, with a cozy restaurant and an attentive crew at your service. Even though the selection of wines and food is modest, these vessels are still much better than other boats.
Surprisingly, the luxurious boats are priced rather modestly, and a single ticket goes for $17-$32 (1,100-2,000 rubles); also expect a reasonable restaurant bill on top.
How to buy tickets?
Women holding photos of ships promise huge discounts to “the young and beautiful,” and give personal invitations for river tours. They sound and look nice, but there’s a small catch: their ticket prices are usually more than those purchased online.
“We bought tickets from street hawkers for 900 rubles each, only to later discover that the other passengers bought their tickets twice as cheap!” wrote (in Russian) a disappointed Rostislav on a travel company website.
Nevertheless, buying from street hawkers has one considerable advantage: they personally escort you to the vessel so that you don’t waste time looking for the boat on your own.
Prices start at $13 (800 rubles) for one ride, and for an additional $6.5 (400 rubles) you can purchase an unlimited number of tours on the same boat on any given day.
Flotilla Radisson has official ticket offices at Gorky Park and Hotel Ukraine, but they’re often sold out.
Buying online is an option that might save some cash. Websites such as this offer considerable discounts for tickets sold online. On a busy Friday night an online purchase might be the only chance to get a ticket on a Flotilla Radisson boat.
This website (in Russian) offers multiple options for short river cruises in and around the city center, including offbeat options such as ‘disco cruises’ and ‘children cruises.’ This other website sells tickets online, but doesn’t have an English version. The interface is intuitive, however.
Buying tickets online has its bad points, however. The most common is confusing which pier you should go to and missing your river tour.
“I once bought tickets online to save with the discount that the website offered,” said Igor Shvarkin from Moscow. “The pier was initially marked as ‘Park Kultury,’ but when I arrived it wasn’t easy to find my boat because there were too many there. My guests had to walk a considerable distance before I finally found the vessel that accepted my tickets purchased online,” said the man.
There are two main boarding piers in the city center: Hotel Ukraine and Park Kultury . Always take note of your particular berth when buying tickets online.
Where to sit onboard?
Even on a warm day, the headwind might be chilly for passengers on deck. Make sure you have warm clothes, or that the crew has blankets ready upon request.
The glass-encased hold makes the tour much more comfortable, but not at the expense of having an enjoyable experience.
Getting off the boat requires preparation as well. Ideally, you should be able to disembark on any pier along the way. In reality, passengers never know where the boat’s captain will make the next stop. Street hawkers often tell passengers in advance where they’ll be able to disembark. If you buy tickets online then you’ll have to research it yourself.
There’s a chance that the captain won’t make any stops at all and will take you back to where the tour began, which is the case with Flotilla Radisson. The safest option is to automatically expect that you’ll return to the pier where you started.

- DebbJ 0 contributions Great way to get oriented to Moscow We started our Moscow experience with the hop on hop off. It was a great way to get orientated to the city. The additional optional tours were also good, we did the Metro tour which I highly recommend, we also paid for the Kremlin tour. The hop on hop off has three different lines all included. Only fault was the bus was sometimes full and you had to wait for the next one which was about 15 minutes (in the cold). Read more Written January 6, 2020

- BeverleyT 0 contributions Boat trip - TERRIBLE We got on the bus, but couldn’t buy a 1 day ticket. They suggested we do the 1 hour boat trip and said they would drop us to the dock. 1) they dropped us in the wrong place 2) they were lost because of the marathon Then the boat, after we finally found it: 1) stinking fumes, actually gagging 2) no commentary, in fact, no interaction unless you begged 3) offered us 2 for 1 icecreams as they had melted and refrozen as the fridge gets turned off at night Honestly, we enjoyed the afternoon in the boat but spent all of it laughing at just how awful it was!!! The worst thing in Moscow! Read more Written August 18, 2019
- niruDurbs 0 contributions Not the best value for the price The ticket is quite expensive and covers three different routes in a 24 hour period. The red route is quite exciting and takes about an hour. The bus comes every 10 to 15 minutes. However the other two routes take about two hours each and buses come every 30 to 40 minute period. If the bus is full then you have to wait at the stop for the next bus. So personally I feel that not much can be seen this way. I definitely was not impressed. However it must be noted that one can learn a lot about the history of Moscow Read more Written July 3, 2019
- IrishCueTravel 0 contributions SLO Motion Not all their fault , but if you plan on trying this Attraction be patient! Traffic is a big problem first and foremost.

- michael g 0 contributions Worst hop on/hop off EVER Waited for 40 minutes in the cold rain for a bus that never came... unacceptable.

- Rebecca J 0 contributions Boat element was excellent We purchased a ticket online for the boat and bus for 2 days. The boat element was wonderful, we saw some amazing parts of Moscow along the river side. The bus element was very disappointing as it only started at 10am and was finished by 6:30pm. It was extremely warm when we were there and it would have been great to do the tour in the cool of the day. There was also no air conditioning in the down stairs part of the bus. They also turned away passengers at one of the stops as the bus was full and there was not another bus for 40 minutes. Read more Written September 26, 2018

- Peter F 0 contributions Two Routes There is a short red route which depending on the traffic takes about an hour. The route is generally around the Red Square area. The ear phones were small and sometimes the commentary did not link up with the sites you were seeing. The green bus takes you on a longer route and ours took two and a half hours due to the heavy traffic. I would not recommend this trip unless it is raining or you want to fill in time. The sights we saw were nothing outstanding with plenty of time at certain stops for photos. Also the driver stop for a bite to eat at one stop. Read more Written July 30, 2018

The bus didn't stop at many points. Were were unaware a couple of times at what point we were and missed them. Headphones and maps were provided. Would recommend one should check out the route map before going and decide which places to stop in advance, this way one can manage and enjoy the tour more and us it more effectively.! The boat ride was Ok, a little crowded. No guide provided, just a boat ride with restaurant service Read more Written July 12, 2018
- WilliamDyer 0 contributions Poor service on boat and too many waiting times on buses For the price, you should expect at minimum English speaking tour guides with decent experience, but at least in my case that did not happen both in buses and boats. And in the boat even tough we were 90% English speaking tourist at least, the tour guide spoke 95% of the time in Russia, and only 3 sentences in English, I really counted how many times she spoke in English. And at the end she asks us if we have any questions? Of course I told her I couldn’t ask her anything since I didn’t understand 95% of what she was saying. The boat tour is not worth it, just take the bus that would be my advice. Second minus is the waiting times, in the boat they made us wait an hour before it departed, and in many stops with the buses waiting times of 20-30 minutes. I actually think I lost that day around 2 hours doing nothing. Be careful. Read more Written July 10, 2018
