The visitor information centre in Rapallo can give information on few different
Self-guided walks, all with information in both English and Italian, the ancient wall was just one of many stops on the self guided walk. Do take care with cars and cyclists in Italy as they don’t always stop on pedestrian crossings although Rapallo isn’t as difficult to negotiate as some of the bigger cities of course. Around busy places eg. The train stations, we tried to cross with the locals who stride across with confidence!
Our day trip on the ferry to Portofino where we had a light lunch/mini picnic…photo below:
On another day we took a ferry boat trip up the Cinque Terre coast, stopping at 2 towns…a post for another day.
If time permits consider doing:
The Rapallo Montallegro cable car excursion…brochure says “since 1934 a cable car has joined Rapallo to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montallegro”, set in the hills 600m above the town. The trip takes about 8 minutes and provides amazing views.”;
“The church is surrounded by beautiful and peaceful countryside, perfect for walking, trekking and biking”.
We didn’t get up there as our timing on the last day (a Sunday) didn’t work out so well…we wanted a few hours to stroll around the waterfront and the pretty central part of town as the day was so beautiful (a post for another day). However, if we do return to Rapallo we will definitely go up! Here’s an image from the Net:
