We were well rested this morning , having slept 12 hours !! The bedroom was so dark and we had no screaming kids !
We got ready and walked down to the town on Portofino. The Belmond has 2 properties here. One high up on a hill ( where we were staying ) and one right on the water ( Belmond Splendio Mare). The hotel has a shuttle service back and forth every 20 mins as well.
Walking this path led to the habor. For a fishing town , it has some very beautiful high end designer stores.
I love buying fruits as they taste so different and natural.

Portofino is around 1:20 mins drom Thr UNESCO world heritage site of Cinque Terra. More on that day 3.
We ate dinner at a restaurant called PUNY. Super food. They take themselves quite seriously and if they don’t think you should , they will advise against cheese in their food lol.
The speciality if this area is pappardelle pasta , made with pesto and tomato sauce.
Steven our waiter shared that Denzel Washington is a big fan and has come back at 1 am ( after an earlier meal) to prepare this with the chef.
In any case , the pasta and the fish we ate were so delicious we decided to come back the next night.
Dessert was gelato !
