Rapallo: introduction

Rapallo Hotel

Like all of the beautiful localities of Liguria, Rapallo offers a combination of sea and inland typical of the region. Situated on the internal part of the Gulf of Tigullio, Rapallo, and its two areas, Santa Maria del Campo and San Massimo, is today an International tourist destination with a port well equipped for private boats.

Giovanni da Vico, Fortunio Licato and Nicolò Barbagelata were born here. Friedrich Nietzche stayed here and found inspiration for his "Zarathustra".

To be seen: the Oratory of S.S Trinità seat of the Confraternity of the Bianchi, the Tower of the Rapallo Community, the Monastery of Valle Christi, the Porta delle Saline, the Lace Museum and the Sanctuary of the Madonna of Montallegro.

Famous for its production of Lace, Rapallo also has fine culinary traditions, with dishes such as Lasagna al Pesto, Foccaccia al'Olio and Frittelle Ripiene.

The town hosts numerous events, among which are the Festival of the Patron Saint Nostra Signora di Montallegro, the Fair of St Sebastiano, and a busy calendar of artistic reviews.
