  • necessarily have to do because Portofino is small so not a lot of things to do.... It is necessary to continue the path which you leads to the Castle until the end, you arrive at the end of the Crete, seen beautiful and a small bar under the lighthouse...

  • With so much history attached to this formidable castle, one has to visit it to fully appreciate the enormous amount of history. From its inception to its current form, it marries the sky and the ocean to stand proud over Portofino for more generations to come.
  • Lovely places , really enjoyed hope to come back again.
  • Given it's location, there's a lot more that could be done inside to make this a worthwhile spot to visit. The movie at the top is great for historical perspective (hot and stuffy in that room though), and what you really get here is a phenomenal view of the Portofino harbor. But you could almost get that at other spots along the hike up.
  • Admission of five euros was worth the visit. Interesting interior with history and views. Garden is small but provides great views of the harbor on both sides. Nice and shaded walk up hill was not strenuous.
  • Castello Brown affords the most amazing views of beautuful Portofino. The castle itself is at the end of a rather long, winding and steep path. If you're not fit or just want to take your time to absorb the views, there are lots of benches to sit on along the way. The highlights of the castle for me were the gorgeous garden and the room full of photos of movie stars strolling in Potofino. All feels so terribly glamorous.
