ID: 273692853 Via Garibaldi in Genoa (Italy, Europe) is a pedestrian area, in a central position, where you will find ancient noble buildings now hosting Banks and ilocal Authorities. From this street, walking toward the sea (the Ancient Port) you will pass through a noticeable number of small and narrow roads (vicoli) the so called, in slang, "carruggi". All these... More

A beautiful little road to stroll down and enjoy the architecture. Stop and enjoy a coffee and watch people pass by or walk through some of the buildings open to the public.

Just allow yourself to imaging what it must have been like a thousand years ago. Most of these building were already 500 years old then. Arguably better built than structures today, if you could only find the stone workers. You can spend hours mesmerized by the rich ornamental details of the facades and grand balconies and vestibules of the magnificent... More

via garibaldi is by itself reason enough for a trip to genoa. on a hot day, you walk onto the street, and it's suddenly cooler, from the breeze and the shade of the large palaces -- one more beautiful than the next. like most of genoa, these wonderful palaces are a bit run-down. it's not a museum-village. one could speak...

One of the most beautiful street in Genoa, which contrasts a lot with the smaller streets in the old town closer to the sea. Impressive palaces/mansions can be seen all along the street (and are representative of the city trading golden age), a lot of them being now owned by banks.

This is a great street to stroll down and walk about the various mansions owned by the traders and shipping magnates. Good local cafes, an amazing chocolate store and street music make this a great place to spend time.

The title says it all. On a nice warm day or evening one can go back and forth non-stop. Grand beautiful buildings all the way with plenty of things to see and enjoy.

International banks have taken over many of the buildings and converted... More

I remember when it was possible to drive my Fiat 600 through Via Garibaldi. For years I never took any notice of how beatiful old Genoa was and still is.
