Rapallo in winter, a gem to be discovered
The horizon and silence are the companions of the winter sea. An endless stretch of immaculate sand replaces the rows of umbrellas, sunbeds and deckchairs; the only audible sound is the rhythmic roar of the surf, which leads to reflection. Rapallo in winter expresses an unusual poetry that continues to spread deep emotions even in the cold season.
Crowded in summer, the promenade of Lungomare Vittorio Veneto in the cold season is a place of peace and tranquility, where you can walk for relaxing walks surrounded by the fresh sea air.
The historic center is animated every day even in the winter months by the characteristic and picturesque fruit and vegetable market, in this period painted in the vivid colors of citrus fruits.
Rapallo is a town rich in historical and architectural heritage, which can be admired more easily in winter, without the crowd of tourists filling the streets and alleys of the center.
Inside the "Luigi Casale" municipal park there is Villa Tigullio with the Lace Museum inside, which displays ancient artifacts made by Rapallese lace makers, famous all over the world.
A curious and bizarre exhibition is that of the Phon Museum, in which the evolution of this object over the years is traced, a symbol of the care of the physical aspect, to which the ladies who walked in the glossy streets of Rapallo of the 1950s held particularly.
Another unmissable destination is the Sanctuary of Monteallegro reached by cable car from the city center, the only one in all of Liguria that offers a splendid view of the Gulf of Tigullio, a few steps from our structure.
