5 of the most beautiful fishing villages in Italy


Given that Italy is a boot-shaped peninsula almost completely surrounded by water, it comes as no surprise that the country has many beautiful seaside villages. The five fishing villages below – in order from north to south – are a mix of famous and lesser-known towns. All of them offer beautiful scenery, a lovely atmosphere, and of course, excellent seafood. And we include all of them in Italy Beyond the Obvious itineraries on a regular basis.

Portofino, Liguria

The town of Portofino, on the Italian Riviera, is itself part of a small peninsula with several quaint fishing villages. Portofino is known for its colorful houses, picturesque landscape, and good people-watching. The town has been a destination for VIP travelers – and their yachts – for decades. In addition to seafood, travelers should taste the local farinata flatbread made with chickpea flour, and pesto, which originates in this area.
