Nestled in the innermost part of Gulf of Tigullio lies Rapallo a town known as a pleasant tourist destination.
The town is about 30 km from Genoa and is well connected by the highway and railway.

Among the historical monuments of military origin, it is worth visiting the castle built in 1550-51 to defend against the attacks of the Saracens which, seems to literally float on the sea. Nowadays it houses several exhibitions and hosts a spectacular fire show and fireworks that are staged every year on July 3 in honor of the patron saint.
