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.
Offering more than 400 berths, Rapallo’s “Carlo Riva” marina can easily accommodate the luxury rented vessels that dock here on their Liguria charters for a stop and a relaxing walk down the streets of the town center.
The Italian Riviera, the international name of this gorgeous stretch of land bordering the sea, features characteristic pastel-hued houses, old alleys rimmed with exclusive boutiques, and buildings of historical interest scattered across the hillside.
Rapallo’s symbol is the Castello sul Mare, the castle on the sea built in the 16th century that stands, encircled by palm trees, on the “Vittorio Veneto” waterfront. This is a perfect spot to gaze at the beautiful plays of light that light up the water at sunset. The beaches, slabs, and boulders are appreciated especially for their naturalistic value. For moments of relaxation head to nearby Zoagli, or San Michele di Pagana.
A funicular railway leads to the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora di Montallegro (Our Lady of Montallegro), standing at a height of 610 meters above the sea in the midst of the hills looking over the shore and offering the best view of the surroundings.
