Rapallo is among the main tourist destinations in Liguria, located only 33 Km from Genoa on the Riviera di Levante [Eastern Riviera], at the centre of the Golfo del Tigullio [Tigullio Gulf].
The historical nucleus of Rapallo is located between the port and the train line; the modern area, full of high-end hotels, was built afterwards, and extends in an arch around the coast and up the green hillsides which surround it. Similarly to the other towns in the area like Santa Margherita and Lavagna, and like many other towns along the coast of Liguria, Rapallo guarantees that tourists will be able to enjoy the beauty of the coast as well as the interior, which only Liguria, due to its unique landscape configuration, can offer. Rapallo is a very welcoming town, full of excellent hotels, and a strategic location thanks to its closeness to Santa Margherita and Portofino.
