Rapallo does feel like a typical seaside resort, the sea itself was muggy the day we were there which didn't make me feel like I wanted to swim in it, although plenty of locals were.

There is usually always some short of display going on which makes for a nice excuse to see inside the castle. It is very lovely, small, and full of history.

It's located a block away from hotel Europa . The small tiny free beach area gets extremely crowed in the summer. Best time to go is after 5pm. Sun goes down about 9:30pm during the summer.

Passed along and visited the castle. You have an explanation inside on the construction and history of the castle. Nice for a quick visit but there are more impressive things to see in the neighbourhood.

Rapallo has a great promenade and at one end is the castle. We were very fortunate that there were fireworks on two of the three nights we were here and on the last night the castle was covered in waterfall type fireworks. Beautiful.

It was overcast and the waves were swooshing in so it made for a good photo opportunity. The small castle is located on the boardwalk in Rapallo, we also had some great wine and snacks at a nearby bar/cafe.

The entire seafront is really beautiful and this small castle is a prominent landmark along the waterfront.

You can walk to the castle but it is closed due to restoration. It is just at the seaside. It is the symbol of beautiful Rapallo.

At the left side of the beach, this old castle is a silent testimony of the history. There is a huge italian flag on the top. From castle, you can see all Rapallo's bay.
