The only place I ever go for Ice cream in Genova. Nothing quite like it! Chinotto in particular is unique.

There are more options than just gelato but that is what we were seeking and found one of the best. This is a great stop as you walk around Genoa. It is near the UNESCO site Via Garibaldi. Via Garibaldi is a must see attraction...More
