HI can anyone tell me how much a taxi from the airport will cost to Rapallo and did you just pick one up outside or Pre book it?
The distance is about 50 km, which normally I would expect to cost around €100. But there is severe traffic congestion in Genoa because of the motorway badge collapse, so the fare is likely to be more. No need to book in advance.
Thank youI am now working outbox much time to leave to get to the airport on the return journey as I think I will book a taxi
If you didn't want to spend on taxis, there is a free bus from the airport to Genova Sestri Ponente Aeroporto train station and the typical train fare is €4.20 each way. http://www.trenitalia.com/tcom-en
There is also a free bus to Genova Piazza Principe train station from where there are more expensive, faster trains. But that bus, like your taxis, will take you through more traffic jams arising from the bridge collapse.
Hello try this first if costs are a concern: most airports have a shuttle bus into the city or public transport. I would guess that there is a stop right outside the main train station. We just called into Genoa off a cruise ship and wanted to visit Portofino - so instead of paying silly cruise ship prices we walked out of the port straight into the train station 29 euro returns (2 of us) to St. Margharita (Rapallo is slightly further on - may be next stop - but gives you an idea of cost). We then jumped on a local bus (directly outside) to Portofino 12 euro (2 of us).
Guessing you might want to visit Portofino by boat from Rapallo?
