You’ll get a taste of the high life today, as you visit two of the glitziest spots on the Italian Riviera. Setting sail from Santa Margherita, your first stop is Portofino. It’s a pretty village favoured by the jet set. In fact, both Giorgio Armani and Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have holiday homes here. You’ll have a few hours to explore the yacht-filled harbour, plus you can make tracks for the Church of St George. It’s a great lookout point, with views over the harbour. A little further up, you’ll find 16th-century Brown Castle, which is set in terraced gardens. Don’t miss the charming tiled staircase inside – it makes a good picture. After, you’ll head back to Santa Margherita, where there’s time to wander the marina, Baroque church and sea-view castle complex, Villa Durazzo. Here, the highlights include lemon tree-sprinkled gardens and a well-restored collection of 17th-century art.
