  • This street is heaven for Tourists.If you have plan to stay in Genova start from this street. Buy Museo Card for 24 or 48 hours incl all transfer from starting 15 Euro !! Ah also at then end of Garibaldi street you may find Ferrari square which is also amazing .
  • A must place to visit if in Genova. Historical place. A first Wall Street of the history.
  • Marvel at the architecture, Italian style. Take pictures if you want, but it'd be a shame cuz it wouldn't do the place justice. Just enjoy the sight and the moment. Thoroughly worth visiting.

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.
