  • The Piazza has a large bronze of Garibaldi mounted on horseback overlooking the fountain which forms the centre piece of the square. Worth a few moments of your time.  more »

  • The perfect place to meet people in town. The fountain is surrounded by art. The beautiful Borsa building; Palazzo Ducale, a centre of major exhibitions and the Carlo Felice, our theatre.
  • Beautiful buildings and museums nearby. Late night events at this plaza are good
  • It's my himetown so if ciurse for me is the moost beautiful in the world 😊
  • Just a fountain and one beautiful building, nothing very interesting.
  • Best place to visit in the evening after 7PM , It seperates new city from old historic city of genova. Lighting at warer fountain is awesome and some dance practice sessions are very good to see.

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.
