Italy is one of the biggest nations in Europe with 60 million inhabitants, making it the sixth country with the highest population in Europe.

This country is really rich in history as well as its natural beauty and there will always be something to be seen for everyone who came here.

To get to Italy, the best way would be by airplane. A lot of international airports are available in this country where the busiest one would be the Rome-Fiumicino “Leonardo da Vinci” Airport and Rome Ciampino “Giovan Battista Pastine” Airport where they are both located in Rome, the capital city of Italy. If you prefer to run away from the big crowd, you can always opt to take a flight to these other airports like Naples-Capodichino Airport and Treviso-Sant’Angelo Airport. It is not hard to find a good car hire company in Italy as the airports here all have car hire Italy, a car hire company that is regarded as the best one for its field. A lot of cars are available for hire with cheap prices that are affordable to all kinds of tourists.

One of the cities in Italy which is little known by foreign tourists is Portofino. Portofino is one of the country’s most enchanting places and this is thanks to a lot of aspects like the climate, the scenery and also the structures. It is located at the Ligurian Coast and reachable by cars and buses. If you want a unique experience, you can also try to travel to this city by cruise ship that will land at the small port of the city. However, if you are aboard those bigger cruise ships the port is unable to handle them, so the ships will just dock near the port and there will be boat services to take you to the shores. The cruise ships are available at Camogli and S. Margherita.

The port here is known as Portus Delphini which means the Port of the Dolphins and this port is the birthplace for the city, where the main city activities are done while the residential areas are located a little way off from the water. The port is really beautiful with floating boats and shops lining up just beside the water. If you are fond of romance, yacht and breathtaking views, make sure that you come to Portofino, Italy for your next vacation.
