An ancestral castle.

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.

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.

Needs work, but then...it's old. Not open often but we did see a school performance once....interesting inside. This year, the lights were off on the sea side and muddy flood trash had collected at its base. Still a beautiful landmark of Rapallo.

Wherever we went in Rapallo, you could always see the Castello. We went to an art exhibition there by Maria Vittoria Vallaro, which was excellent. We swam beside it, and ate and drank always within sight of it. At night it is lit up and seems to rise dramatically from the sea.

Very small castle situated in the bay. Look spectacular at night when it is flooded with light. You can't miss it if you are in Rapallo but not worth going there just for castle. Nice to look at from one of the restaurants which overlook it.

Nice small castle, amazing view. Won't be worth an effort to go outside the city, but now you will see it anyway :)

Especially in the evening, when the Castello di Rapallo is lit, take a walk on the promenade… There are nice cafes right across it so you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine and view the Castello….
