  • A very nice square which hosts in the Middle a beautiful Fountain with jets that reach a high height. Very important Ducal Palace (and all cultural initiatives that distinguish it) and at the bottom of the Carlo Felice Theatre which houses an interesting concert and opera season. Other routes radiate out from the square with buildings of great architectural interest.

Piazza De Ferrari, rally and gathering place for the most important events derives its name from the Duke of Galliera, Raffaele De Ferrari, munificent benefactor, in 1875 he donated a significant sum of money for the expansion of the port.

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.
