here below please find a few basic information about our Rotary Club Portofino.
If you drop by the lovely coast of the Ligurian Sea, in the north west part of Italy, and you want to meet with your fellows Rotarians, please read the following.
Some geographical facts. Portofino is a unique cozy fisherman village settled by Ancient Romans some 2,000 years ago. Only when Britons roaming the world discovered Portofino, it has become in the last two centuries a world famous resort sure worth a visit. Since the road to Portofino is a classic narrow winding road, many permanent traffic restrictions are in effect. During the peak season driving to Portofino can be a quite demanding experience. Ferries instead run frequently to and from Portofino and that’s by and large the best and more convenient mean to get there.
Some miles before, Santa Margherita Ligure that beside being a lovely small town as well, offer several facilities. It has plenty of parking, it is closer to the Autostrada and there is a railway station too. As an alternative, we meet sometimes on the other side of the Portofino peninsula, in Camogli: another ancient breathtaking sea village.
We generally meet at dinner three times a month. Our Dinners are hosted at the hotel restaurant lounges. So, once in a while some Rotarians from a foreign country pop in, maybe with their dears travelling on vacation or for business. They are welcome to join us! The evenings start at 8 pm when our President rings the Bell and spends a few words to introduce or update services and other activities run by our Club, our District and the Rotary International. We have guests giving their speeches about a wide range of subjects. We have a rule strictly enforced that the evening ends at 11 pm.
