Last minute itinerary help- Rapallo/CT/Portofino and Alba/Piedmonte

Jump to last reply

Hello! I have posted twice here and Fodorites have been amazingly helpful, so I thought the third time is a charm.
Husband and I are headed to Italy (first time) next Thursday. We have had an incredibly busy few weeks and barely any time to plan our itinerary and won't have much time before we leave. This trip sort of snuck up on us- oops-

We are in our 30s, love to hike/explore, eat (vegetarian), taste and drink wine, and don't need to hit up the touristy stuff- perfectly happy spending our mornings hiking and afternoon relaxing and enjoying beautiful countryside.

We are flying into Milan from Denver, spending the night in Milan and renting a car and driving to Rapallo on Saturday morning. We have rented a house in Rapallo and will spend three days in the area- hope to hike CT one day, and the other days walk/hike Portofino, Camogli and Santa Margherita, as well as hit up Luchin in Chiavari and eat at U Gianci- all per Fodor forum recommendations.

We plan to drive to our villa rental in Alba on the following Wednesday and would like to spend the next three days doing some morning hikes, lazy afternoon lunches and maybe some wineries. Plan would be to eat lunches out and hopefully cook in our villas after going to markets in the evening (both in Alba and Rapallo).
Fly back out of Milan the following Saturday.

Other than the rental car and villa rentals, we have nothing else planned- my husband is not concerned and says we will enjoy and just explore, but I'm pretty type A and freaking out that we don't have "a set plan" for each day.

This site has been a wealth of info and we designed our trip around Forum recommendations, so any other input would be very much appreciated- and if I'm freaking out for no reason and should be fine just hitting up the local tourism boards, let me know that ;)
