Rapallo Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Rapallo is the second city for importance of Tigullio Gulf: quite 30.000 people lives in it . The symbol of Rapallo is its old catle surrounded by the sea that once had to defend the city from pirate invasions and where nowadays original art exhibitions are held. Early in July, the catle bursts into flame under a ring of fireworks: it is the highest point of the festivity in honour of the Holy Virgin of Montallegro, whose shrine has been built on a hill bearing the same name and that can be reached by the only funicular in Ligury. From up here, there is the most breathtaking view and the walls inside the 7th century shrine still preserve many precious “ex-voto”.
