Rapallo Suggested Itineraries Home | Italy | Rapallo

This is one of the largest municipalities on the Eastern Riviera, laying sheltered from winds and currents in an inlet on the Golfo del Tigullio and first inhabited in pre-Roman times by the Tigulli of Liguria. There`s a picturesque castle in the sea, a small harbor and a fine seaside Lungomare Vittorio Veneto, a traditional red-brick promenade lined with palm trees, skirting the semi-circular harbor. Along the promenade are art nouveau buildings, restaurants, bars, and hotels. In summer small music groups sometimes perform in the early 20th century band shell, Chiosco della Banda Cittadina. The bathing areas are flanked by the two tourist ports, which can berth up to 900 boats. The town also has. There are excellent sports facilities, such as the Olympic swimming pools, the horse-riding club, minigolf and rifle shooting club. Also well known is the 18-hole golf course, one of the most popular in Italy, which is situated next to the ruins of the Valle Christi, a Cistercian monastery founded in 1204.
