Located in the most sheltered area of the Tigullio Gulf, Rapallo is the oldest town of the area. Evidence of its history can be seen in its Castle, a seafront fortress built in the 16th century against Saracens invasions, the Medieval bridge which, according to legend, Hannibal crossed during the Second Punic War, and the numerous Baroque steeples reaching up to the sky.
