After a long morning and a delicious lunch in nearby San Fruttuoso, we finally set foot in Portofino, the main attraction we'd come to see in Liguria this trip. The town is beautiful and known to be a popular playground for the wealthy, though there was not a whole lot there for the rest of us if I am being frank. We climbed up to the church above town, took in the view, wandered through some art galleries and boutiques, stopped for an espresso, then began a strenuous hike up to the Hotel Splendido, a popular site for bloggers and Instagrammers. Don't get me wrong the whole place was truly beautiful despite a hazy gloom that had rolled in that afternoon, but I feel like it would have been a wholly different experience for the wealthy that frequent the area than it was for tourists like Ashley and I. And that's entirely fine. I wish I could enjoy the Prada and the Louis Vuitton stores, stay at the stunning and exclusive hotels, and lounge in the small harbor on my mega yacht. But alas, that is not my life, and the 30 euro glass of prosecco sent us scurrying back to reality very quickly.
