Like the terrace of a grand hotel, or a café or restaurant overlooking the sea, the Piazzetta is a salon of life and culture. Ever since the early twentieth century, and especially during the Dolce Vita, history has passed through in a whirl of aristocracy, literature, art, cinema and luxury. Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor, and Wallis Simpson, Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer, Clark Gable, Kim Novak, Bergman and Rossellini, Taylor and Burton, Orson Welles, Soraya, Hemingway and Sofia Loren all came by. And this is why Piazza dei Martiri dell’Olivetta, known the world over as the “Piazzetta” of Portofino, is a Locale Storico d’Italia.
Piazza Martiri dell'Olivetta -, 16034 Portofino (GE)
