Portofino was the next port in Italy, only accessible from a small boat. It is colorful and quaint town nestled in the hills on the water. Windstar held their their signature pesto tasting a short boat ride away. We hiked up to the top of a small hill to a beautiful old building overlooking the Mediterranean. Excellent food was served, wine and an authentic pesto demonstration for all to observe and taste. We learned about balsamic vinegar and the regions where it is made. We bought a small bottle of aged balsamic that is so sweet, you can drizzle it over ice cream. We explored the city for the day, sipped on cafe and had some gelato before heading back to the boat.
