Rapallo: Timeless sea and shores in Liguria

Rapallo

Rapallo is a historical seaside resort on the Ligurian Riviera that enjoys a reputation of warm hospitality among yachters. This enchanting little town located in the Gulf of Tigullio, sits between the rivers Bogo and San Francesco.

The 400 berths of the marina, especially the cozy Porto Carlo Riva, can easily accommodate the luxury charters that stop here on a cruise along the coast of Liguria.

The Italian Riviera is a truly magical piece of Bel Paese. The colorful houses and narrow streets crowded with craft shops and boutiques create an exciting atmosphere, while inlets like San Fruttuso welcome visitors willing to take a dip in the azure waters of the sweeping bay.

Rapallo is also an historical gem, packed with glamorous villas that tell of a glorious past, like the famous Castello sul Mare accessible via a lateral strip of sand. Sprinkled among boulders and rocks, Rapallo’s beaches are a natural beauty tinged with vibrant sea colors. Larger beaches are the nearby Zoagli and San Michele di Pagana.

The Vittorio Veneto promenade faces across the harbor and the alluring waters of the Riviera di Levante. Lined with palm trees, it boasts several renowned restaurants. Stepping down from your boat, you will not be short of options to relax and enjoy yourself.

For a spectacular view of the surroundings take the cable car to the top of the hill and visit the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora di Montallegro. Cinque Terre is a fascinating destination for a luxury cruise in the Mediterranean and Rapallo should certainly be included in the itinerary of your exciting charter.
