It was an ancient Genovese village and had build itself the famous castle and the lovely old town, nice place, a market place, old palazzos and many colored houses; nice to stroll in the narrow streets, nice restaurants and terraces.

If for instance Portifino is excellent, the historic centre of Rapallo is average indeed. It is still nice and has a wide extended pedestrian area with shops, bars and restaurants.

While there is no single sight in the centre of Rapallo which warrants more than three star, the essential attraction of Rapallo is the overall feel which certainly gets four stars.

Here you find beautiful narrow alleys with a lot of different style shops, bars and many restaurants on cozy little squares. Lovely stay.

Rapallo was one of our choiches along the summer holiday trip in the Italian Riviera. The city is very nice with long beach promenade and there are nice small alleys in Centro Storico. The only downside was that there were no good public beaches in...More

I think the thing I enjoyed most about Rapallo is that it was full of locals and not overflowing with tourists. I went into a local hotel to ask about finding a grocery store and once I found the store, I found a very friendly...More

Typical Italian city centre, on cobble stone pathways and car free. Lots of places to eat and little shops selling clothing, Worth a walk through if in Rapallo,

Compared to many other places I have visied the old town lacks the buzz you would expect. No buskers at the restaurants, no street lights and not many shops open of an evening.
