Movie stars and other famous pretty people do pass through, 'though not so frequently as yesteryear. The most famous, of course, are ensconced in the fabulous private estates set along the coast, protected from the curious eyes of all but those with the means to rent helicopters and light aircraft. Our late Princess Diana, for example, did spend the night in a local discotheque in August (1997), but it was closed to all but her private party.

The Prince need not have worried because within three years of setting it up, the casino had earned enough money to ensure it's peoples' loyalty by abolishing direct taxation and military service! It is difficult to credit now that in the middle of the nineteenth century Monaco was the poorest state in Europe. Nothing useful could grown on its rocky soil and it barely existed by selling salt and Custom rights to France.

Portofino Yacht Charters
Along Italy's northern coast lies enchanting Portofino, picturesquely situated in a narrow cove at the southeastern tip of the promontory of the same name. The tiny port owes its popularity to its beautiful setting, agreeable climate and lush and luxuriant vegetation. This "Pearl of the Mediterranean" has long been known as an exclusive gathering place for the wealthy, artists and actors. In 1935 the city government of nearby Genoa declared Portofino a national monument so architecture has changed very little in the past 60 years as alterations must receive approval.
Bronzed and beautiful visitors enjoy the unique ambiance, chic boutiques and quaint cafés that overlook the small yacht harbor. Others explore the surrounding coastline, where tiny villages are tucked away in hidden coves. If your taste runs more toward the clamor of big city life, bustling Genoa is only a short drive away. However, don't miss out on most everyone's favorite pastime - people-watching while leisurely sitting in one of the outdoor cafés or on your own private luxury yacht.
