Caruggi District, Genoa

(280+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood
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.
