Rapallo town center is certainly worth the visit and you will enjoy but it does not have the same historical feel and ambiance as other similar old town centers would have . We still enjoyed our stroll around it .

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.

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,
