A Walk To Castello Brown, Portofino, Italy (Road trip 52)

Scroll down to content

September 2018 – After our boat trip to San Fruttuoso, the next bay round from Portofino, we returned and had lunch in one of the restaurants in Portofino Harbour.  Everyone had told us it was very expensive place to eat, well we both had a lovely salad, with drinks, which worked out about 10 euros each, lets just say, one of the cheaper meals that we had on our road trip.  After watching the world past by and having a little rest (I still had the cold from hell) it was time to climb steps up to the castle (Castello Brown) something I was bracing myself for, it looked so high and steep.  All I could do was take it slowly, and by stopping to take loads of photos, helped with my breathing.  I did make it, and photos of the castle to follow, plus a beautiful bride 🙂

  1. Wonderful post and lovely gorgeous photos. I have to confess that I do not know Portofino. I remember heard the name Portofino from the old song sung by Dalida. Thank You.

    1. I love the way they built them so close to the water and I found out later on in a different place why, they used them as a defence against being attacked from the sea 🙂

  2. Lovely photos of a very scenic place! Had to wonder how many times wash slipped from the hand of the one hanging up wash just below the window….every now and then a piece of wash will slip away on me but I don’t have far to retrieve what was blown from my hand.

  3. Looks lovely!
    “Everyone had told us it was very expensive place to eat” – expense is relative, I guess 😀 Mind you 10 Euros might be a lot if the pound crashes even more after 29 March. Things seemed more expensive during my recent trips to the Netherlands and Ireland due to the poor exchange rate
