Although all is very clean and neat, there are no many things that make this town stand apart from majority of other Italian coastal towns. That is not a bad thing at all, to be honest.

It’s so nice to walk thru the centro and browse all of its shops . You can’t come to Rapallo and not walk down a couple streets . Don’t forget there is a fruit and vegetable market every day that is in the center ....More

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.
