Caruggi District, Genoa

(3.2/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Wander the narrow streets of Genoa’s old quarter in Caruggi District. Pick your way over stone paths and peek around the corners of back streets to see what daily life is like in this neighborhood, slightly deteriorated from its former glory. Stop at neighborhood cafes and restaurants, sit around small plazas and fountains, and enjoy the shade cast by the old buildings in this atmospheric section of the city. Through this pedestrian-only area, pop into old churches and appreciate the UNESCO-protected palaces that line Via Garibaldi, Via Luccoli, and Via Salita S. Use our Genoa itinerary builder to add Caruggi District and other attractions to your Genoa vacation plans.

  • These are our streets, beautiful and oldest, but neglected, forgotten regarding order, hygiene, cleanliness and safety. The type of people who frequent these places doesn't seem right in the utmost legality, many young women of various nationalities are standing at the corners: no one knows for what purposes. Since there is city bus line! Too dark and few controls.

  • The alleyways of Genova are truly special, a network of narrow alleys where you can get lost easily. Lifting her head and being careful you can still find wonders from the past: old doors, bas-reliefs, columns, frescoes and especially wonderful buildings. The only sore point the garbage that is unfortunately here and there ... A gem: in piazza Banchi, a short walk from the Aquarium, there is the only church in the world with under the stores. To see!
