#JetsetterCurator #Italy Hotel Splendido in Portofino... lovely hotel but the setting is really what makes it. Stay up the hill vs. at the Splendido Mare, which is newer and right in town but just isn't as special as the original. Portofino itself is beautiful but kind of empty-feeling... it's strictly a tourist town. For more vibrance and energy go to Sta. Margherita Ligure. Splendido will set you back a fortune but if you can afford it, go for it. If not, go for lunch and enjoy the view.
