Instead, we went in the other direction to Portifino. What a good decision! We caught the ferry and had lovely views of Rapallo as we motored first to Santa Margarita and then to Portifino.

... at the mouth of the Roia River, which divides the town into two parts. Ventimiglia's urban area has a population of 55,000.
The trip from Ventimiglia to Rappallo was fairly uneventful and we even were able to figure out how to walk to our hotel from the train station, with the help of a few fast talking Italians and a couple of key hand gestures that got us going in the right direction. (No not those kind of hand gestures! ;-)
