Portofino’s Lighthouse

For an aperitif – and not only – with a breath-taking view on the Gulf of Tigullio, there is a special place: the lounge bar Il Faro di Portofino (the Lighthouse of Portofino), at the most “extreme” and suggestive point of the promontory, reachable only by foot with a short hike from Portofino’s piazzetta till the base of the lighthouse. It is open from morning till sunset, an ideal moment to taste different cocktails, such as the now famous La Portofinese Spritz, with prosecco, soda and limoncino produced by the company itself, accompanied by a platter with Ligurian delicacies and home-made gastronomic products.

For a more intimate experience, from spring 2022 there is also Il Faretto (the Little Lighthouse): a small green eden with a dozen tables immersed in the Mediterranean scrub, in the shade of a fragrant lemon grove, which can also be booked in exclusivity.


Our locations reveal the hidden and unusual of Portofino, and they can all be booked as unbeatable locations for unforgettable occasions. La Portofinese’s entire staff is ready to work together with you to create absolutely the best day of your life.


The Lighthouse (Il Faro) is open every day.

Monday – Thursday 10.30am – 8pm
Friday, Saturday, Sunday 10.30am – 9pm

We will be closed in case of bad weather.

The “Small Lighthouse” is temporarily closed.
