The 16th century castle is defenitely Rapallo's landmark. Walking along the boulevard, you can't miss it, even though it's not a huge structure. If you're lucky, you can walk in for free to visit an art exhibition.

We were recommended this restarting/bar but was slightly disappointed. Great location, and we had a table outside on a very warm evening. The wine was very nice, but the bruschetta menu was a little lacking.

I was here 40 years ago and it felt like I never left. Beautiful marker on the coast. It was a pity that we couldn’t get in because of the fact there was an exposition (only 9 – 11 PM).

This Castle is too cool. In the heart of Rapallo. There's a plaque nearby that explains it's history since it's construction in the mid 1500's. Upon our visit we had the good fortune to find that the castle was showcasing an art exhibit of famed...More
