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.

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.

The district center is a great place to walk in the early morning. There are not a lot of people out, and you get to take-in the colors of the beautiful buildings and architecture the area has to offer. You will see the shopkeepers preparing...More
