The Italian Riviera is famed for its relaxed way of life and welcoming climate, both of which have been attracting visitors for centuries. Found in the North West of Italy, adjacent to France, the area has beautiful scenery and historic coastal towns to enjoy. The Cinque Terre are five colourful villages which precipitously hang on to the coastline. The villages are connected by coastal paths and by trains which run along the coast up to the city of Genoa.
Europa Hotel occupies an ideal location opposite Rapallo’s famous harbour castle and a few steps from the beach. The hotel’s restaurant has its own peaceful garden and there is also a Plinio Thermarium Spa complete with a sauna and Turkish bath. Rapallo’s central station is just a 5 minute walk away.
