Five nights Rapallo, CT, Portovenere, Portofino - enough time?

Jump to last reply

I have five nights in Rapallo in July and am wondering how realistic my plan is. I'll be coming from Vence, France by train so probably won't get to Rapallo till late afternoon. So that will leave me with four full days in the area. I was thinking one for Portovenere and one for the CT.

Is it realistic to think I could see Santa Margherita, Portofino and San Fruttuoso in one day? I wouldn't do the long hikes, would take the boat to San Fruttuoso and between the other towns I'd take train, bus or boat - whichever made sense in terms of time.

That would leave me one last day for which I was thinking of spending the day in Genova.

After this part of my trip I'll be heading up to Lausanne, Switzerland for six nights.

Is this time frame realistic? Any changes you would make to this? When would you do trains versus boats? Thanks
