  • The Plaza is majestic and the fountain is the part that attracts more, especially children, among other things the Jets change shape warned. Pity that you cannot take a picture because it's full of these "statues" trying to sell you suvenir (certainly of Genoese origin ...) or door phones for selfie. I hope that the Government, at least in the most beautiful Gates abusive sellers that it can not be more!

  • Impossible not to move from this square if they come to Genoa, as set in the heart of the historic centre, between 20TH Street and via San Lorenzo. Not very big but always busy, always worth a look. Shame about the windiest days. ...

  • Track central square, here our Genoa began touring. A central parking garage is nearby. Here is a hop stop off on hop buses - always a good way to get to know a city.

  • Best plaza in the city. Nice place to sit down and relax.
  • Neuralgic as well as geographical center of Genova, middle point between the historical center (vicoli) and the more commercial center (xx September/ foce). And too, a beautiful square with the most iconic fountain in Genova.
  • "Lovely and free" My husband and I stayed a entire day walking around the Piazza Ferrari and neighborhood. It is a good place for shopping or just spend time. A very good point to visit around
  • That's 100% the center of the city, and it is really nice. However, don't bother to go there by purpose, you would end up in Piazza De Ferrari anyway while you go around.
  • A very nice fountain near a very large intersection with tons of traffic and people. Fountain and architecture were beautiful, the hecklers trying to sell you things by saying they are 'free' not so much. Otherwise well worth visiting as a tourist!
