... at a very leisurely pace. Rapallo is a place we have visited before,.. in our 2000 trip,.. and we wanted to re-kindle the memories of that time so long ago. Well,.. not a lot has changed,.. but, being August, it is very, very busy. We found our campsite from 2000, for old times sake,.. and decided it was a better option to keep moving towards Genoa.
