Continuing her summer holidays from South of France , Rihanna headed out for Italy on board of a hired yatch... As with many other celebrities, she and her friends could not resist the charm and beauty of the coast of Portofino. On August 24th, 2011 the happy group were spotted having some fun in the water and enjoying snorkelling in the clear blue waters near the coast of Portofino.

And of course no sightseeing is comlete without a taste of an italian icecream. Rihanna stops at gelateria San Giorgio and takes the tourists in the shop by complete surprise. We hear she went for the Stracciatella flavour of icecream but did not leave the best of impressions when she jumped the queue...

And while the town of Portofino itself is rather small, it still offers a great choice of shops from the expensive boutiques to the cheap souvenir shops as well as lots of restaurants, cafes, and luxury hotels to relax in. Rihanna could not resist a spot of retail therapy either and visited some of the exclusive boutiques...

Later that night, Rihanna was looking fabulous when along with her
friends she came out for a night out in Portofino. They visited the
jewelry boutiques and the exhibited art along the main street, ending
at the beautiful gallery Tornabuoni which exhibits paintings of great
artists such as Lucio Fontana and Giorgio Morandi. After continuing her
stroll and signing autographs to her fans, Rihanna and her party went
her yacht and headed out for Sardenia.
