The large fountain surrounded by impressive buildings with statues on the roofs and façades really worth a visit. We've been strolling around the Plazza De Ferrari at dusk, taking nice photos.
The Porta Soprana is not far away, as well as the house of Columbus.

magnificent square with teh cool fountain surrounded by encrusted or painted facades of grand old Italy. We wetn into the Ducale palace atrium, but spoiled from its former glory by moderm bits and pieces. Did not go to the exhbits/ art shows etc, so no comments on the inside

Lots of places in side streets for coffee, pizza ices, etc. Worth wlaking past on way from old port to "place row"via garibaldi

busy and noisy, typical mediterranean style city center, you can feel Genova's heartbeat. It is in the crossing of Garibaldi street so you will definitely get there

We were told by our host that tho piazza is an "energy center" and if we went there we could feel out energy renewed. I'm no so sure of that, but it was a pretty square and the architecture of the surrounding building was beautiful. Also in that square is a the restaurant Storia. Great budget place because after 17.00, you buy a 7€ cocktail and get an all you can eat buffet (pasta, veggies, focaccia, chicken, fries). Mediocre food but if you are traveling on budget and want bang for your buck...

One of the places that must be visited in Genoa. Especially at night is pageantry with the illuminated fountains and the magnificent buildings.
