If you want to enjoy some dramatic scenery, twisties, the blue med, italian playboys posing in their ferraris and lots of bikes then you need to experience this all too short road. It starts in Santa Margherita Ligure and hugs the coast for about 8k to the very chic and expensive resort of Portofino. The place is teeming with italian glitterati, fast cars and fast bikes. The route is a series of great tight twisties. You simply stay on the SS227 all the way. Italys answer to the french riviera must be experienced at least once. If you feel like blowing some serious cash then stop for a meal in Portofini or ride up to the 5 star Hotel Splendido where a bellini and canapes will set you back £10 a time....but the views from their terrace are to die for.
