  • 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!
