This castle sits beautifully along Rapallo's beach front.

It is the main symbol of the town and it has been declared as a national monument by the Cultural Ministry. A mediaeval castle that was built in 1551 after an incursion by the Turkish pirate Dragut in 1549.

We had an excellent view of the castello 50 meters from our balcony. The history of the building is very interesting but unfortunately the castello is only accessible a couple times a year. Lots of good photo opportunities though.

Not the most attractive of castles or fortresses you will ever see, Rapallo Castle has nevertheless stood proud at the western end of Rapallo‘s main beach for pushing 470 years.

You will find a small beach next to the castle where locals sit, play and swim until late Into the night. It seems a shame that the building isn’t lit up at night, there appears to be lighting affixed to the base but it was never switched on while we were in Rapallo (5 nights).

Rapallo is a wonderful municipal port town near Genoa. It has been known for its climate that made it over the years the winter residence of preference for most of the affluent Italians living in the North West of Italy. Its proximity to the coast makes for mild winters where people can enjoy easy strolls on the sunny promenade and the golfers can enjoy one of the oldest courses in Italy, opened in 1930.
Friedrich Nietzsche wrote that the ideas for Zarathustra first came to him while walking on two roads surrounding Rapallo. Ezra Pound spent much of the late 1920s and 1930s living in the town. Rapallo has amazing colourfully decorated buildings and alleys and streets for the tourists to enjoy. There is a music kiosk with painted dome which was built from contributions from people who had migrated to Latin America from Rapallo.

isolated because of the coastal damage, this was no longer visitable. All a mes around it due to the storm damage but should be back to full splendour later this year

Taking in the many sights of Rapallo is the Castello Di Rapallo. Strolling along the boardwalk , unfortunately when we were visiting Rapallo the area was having renovations. It was still very interesting to see and the area had many wonderful cafes, restaurants and hotels to visit.

If you don’t mind bright orange fencing blocking off the entry due to construction needed after the storm, to be visible in photos of this landmark beauty, then you’re ok. It’s closed.

Even if it is a small castle and I couldn't see it inside, it is quite a spectacle to the eye (in summer) as it decorates the lovely landscape, the bay and beach of this beautiful small town.
