Rapallo is a pretty Italian Riviera town, situated just along the coast from the towns of Portofino and Chiavari. With a historic waterfront castle and pretty terracotta backstreets, Rapallo has lots to offer, along with the obvious benefit of being close to some of the Riviera’s most popular spots.
The town plays out somewhat like a slightly larger and more affordable Portofino, with beautiful buildings set around a harbour and excellent restaurants hidden in the historic lanes. There are a number of attractions close by, including a rather impressive golf course and the beautiful 16th-century Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montallegro church, situated high on a hill overlooking Rapallo and only accessible by cable car. Back in the town centre, there are dozens of great dining options, offering good-value house wines, delicious seafood and classic pasta dishes. All in all, Rapallo has enough to shine by itself, but, with a location just along the coast from Portofino, you’ll be able to enjoy the best of both worlds during your stay.
