The Grand Hotel Savoia is a great hotel. We've been lucky enough to stay in some of the great hotels of the world - the Taj in Bombay, the Cecil in Alexandria and the Winter Palace in Luxor and this hotel is right up there with them. It's not super luxe or super chic - it's just grand in the old fashioned way. Grand like you'd just want to stay in your room all day and read a novel and then descend at tea time and linger in the great room and read the afternoon papers

When we had our tickets, they demanded a donation or the figurines back. No little Kenyon animals will be coming back to Canada with us. The aquarium was quite interesting and well laid out on 3 levels. This allowed one to view the large tanks from 3 ...
... t work, data was also sketchy so finding our way around was full of mis-turns. We spent 4-5 hours walking in what would eventually resemble a rumba cleaning pattern around the city. There was no (open) interesting stores. We didn't do enough research to appreciate the architecture or landmarks, we had a clanger of a day.
The best part? It was only half an hour back to Rapallo. Tomorrow is Nice, we're busy researching ...
... the Palazzo Rosso, which obviously is red on the outside. Built by the Sales in the 1670's. The first two floors were intended for the art collections of the two brothers Giofrancesco and Rudolfo. The owner gave the Palazzo to the city in the 1800's. She also bought the palazzo across the street, had it renovated, for her grandson. It was named the Palazzo Bianci for its white plaster exterior. Both ...
