Caruggi District, Genoa

3.2
#5 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Italian Riviera
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

  • Nice location in a small garden just next cloister of Christophe Colomb House. Quiet and shady place.

  • Mixed feelings are trying to follow the winding alleyways that are the guts of Genoa, on the one hand it is picturesque medieval Immerge, see sometimes beautiful palaces (Spinola for example) or hidden churches (St Peter, to see), on the other hand, the dirt, the colorful Web of poverty, prostitution and small trades leave a bit perplexed in the big city of an advanced country like Italy.

Where to stay in Genoa

Located just steps from the city's famous tourist sites, Genoa's centrally located B&Bs and hotels offer comfortable lodgings suitable for all tastes and budgets. To avoid the expense and stress of driving and parking in Genoa's central districts, look for a boutique hotel just outside the city center. Staying out of the busy heart of Genoa is a practical and affordable compromise, offering a good base for exploring numerous fishing villages located along the coastline. Hostels operating in residential areas also offer private parking and easy access to buses into the center of town.
