We stayed two nights in Rapallo on the Italian coast which as a whole is spectacularly beautiful. However the seemingly expensive real estate does not bode well for the camping industry and campgrounds were quite scarce: the site we stayed at was really pleasant even if it did run alongside the motorway.
It was great to find that food prices were once again reasonable. We ate out in town on the first night and at the campground restaurant on the second. We thought that €50 all up for a family of five at the latter was pretty good value. Ange was all excited about the €1 coffee's as in Switzerland we had to "coff-up" up to €4 for an espresso!
