Is a good experience to sit beside this "chiosco" to hace a drink. Preferently al sunset. The lovely coluors change and offers a very beautilful sight.

This was at the beginning of the main seafront in Rapallo and when you look inside especially at the roof the artwork is beautiful

Nothing much when empty. We were there to see, hear, a band play, we booked a table at the "Moby Dick" restaurant and had a nice meal and loved the band, they were very good and it was a nice venue. There are nice paintings on the inside ceiling but they are showing signs of wear and neglect.

This elegant rotunda is a striking landmark on the waterfront at Rapallo. Look up at the ceiling inside and you will see a mini version of the painted Sistine Chapel ceiling.I would love to be there when an orchestra or band plays. Very ornate architecture.

The Dome is beautifully painted and lit up at night. Sometimes people play music inside the Chiosco.

This little chiosco is situated in the middle of waterfront promenade, you can't miss it. It's free of charge. Very nice paintings in the ceiling.

This beautiful bandstand in a small square off the lungomare is fascinating - inside its domed roof the ceiling is decorated with with typical gods and goddesses of Italian myths and legends, all swirling round in a blue heaven.

lots of restaurants around, people hanging out, playing soccer. not sure if there's anything historic about it, but it's not that impressive or worth visiting.

As simple as this little kiosk is visible and can be visited free of charge in the marina area of the city, just few steps away from the sea shore. If you are not familiar with the its story may seem like an ordinary, anonymous cloister, certainly not the top attraction of the city indeed. Who knows if it was... More

In the evening the light shows a decorated ceiling that passes almost unnoticed during the day. Local musicians or dancers practise and create a magic ambiance
