Rapallo can be reached by regional trains from Genova, which run several times a day from Genova Principe and Genova Brignole stations.
Be sure to visit the farmer's market which is held most weekdays and has the most astonishing array of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Take a trip by boat to Portofino and see how the other half lives!!
Most of the restaurants in Rapallo are clustered along the sea-front and many of them are attached to hotels, but there are also many very good trattoria and gelateria in the back-streets. The quality of the food varies but most are of a reasonable standard, but as with many things, you get what you pay for. If a pizza is all you're after, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the excellent variety and quality on offer in most restaurants. Many of the more popular eating places will be extremely busy in the evenings at the height of the season so expect a wait if you haven't booked. Lunch-time is much less hectic.
While retaining all its elegance and nobility, this historical residence also offers a wide array of services and comforts to satisfy even the most demanding customer.
