Welcome to Italy in Photos, where we invite you to immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Rapallo: – Rapallo is a lovely town on the Ligurian Sea coast, in the north-west of Italy. It is the largest and most popular seaside resort in the region, attracting visitors with its picturesque scenery, historical attractions, and lively atmosphere. Rapallo is located in the Tigullio Gulf, between the famous Portofino and the elegant Chiavari. It is also part of the Portofino Natural Regional Park, which covers the territory of six communes and preserves the natural beauty and biodiversity of the area. It has a rich and varied history, dating back to the 8th century BC, when it was either an Etruscan or a Greek settlement. It became a Genoese dominion in the 13th century, and was involved in several battles and conflicts, such as the Battle of Meloria, the pirate raids, and the Napoleonic Wars. It was also the site of the Rapallo Conference in 1917, where the Allies decided to create a supreme war council to coordinate their efforts in World War I. Rapallo offers many attractions for tourists, both cultural and natural. The most iconic landmark is the Castle on the Sea, a small fortress built in 1551 to defend the town from the Ottoman and Barbary pirates. It is now used for exhibitions and events, and provides a stunning backdrop for the harbor and the promenade. The historical center of Rapallo is full of colorful buildings, pedestrian streets, and elegant shops. The Basilica of Sts. Gervasius and Protasius, the Municipal Tower, and the Church of Saint Francis are some of the notable monuments in the old town. Rapallo also has two museums, the Gaffoglio Museum, which displays collections of gold, china, and ivory, and the Lace Museum, which showcases the local tradition of lace-making. One of the most enjoyable activities in Rapallo is to take the cable car up to Montallegro, a hilltop sanctuary that offers spectacular views of the gulf and the hills. The cable car ride takes eight minutes and leaves every half hour from Piazza Solari. The sanctuary was built in 1558 to commemorate a miraculous apparition of the Virgin Mary to a peasant. It is a place of pilgrimage and devotion, as well as a popular destination for hikers and nature lovers. Rapallo is a perfect base for exploring the Italian Riviera, as it is well connected by public transport and has a variety of accommodation options. From Rapallo, it is easy to reach other beautiful places, such as Portofino, Santa Margherita Ligure, Camogli, Sestri Levante, and the Cinque Terre. Rapallo is also famous for its seafood cuisine, which can be enjoyed in the many restaurants and bars along the seafront. Rapallo is a town that combines history, culture, nature, and fun, and is sure to delight any visitor.
