When you reach Savona Cruise Terminal the first thing that you see is a tower which is Torre Leon Pancaldo. From the Cruise Terminal it is very easy to go to the Tourist Information Office where you are greeted by friendly staff who explain in detail how to visit the most interesting places of Savona. If you have good feet and on a sunny day you wear a hat you can easily reach every place of interest. We did all this in roughly 4 hours. If it's a Sunday we will have an extra bonus of visiting a very large antique market.
Torre Leon Pancaldo is also known as Torre della Quarda or Torretta. It dates back to the 14th century and is the symbol of Savona. It houses a statuette of Our Lady of Mercy in a niche on its south facade.

For those who depart or arrive by ship to Savona this tower is one of the first thing they see. It marks as well where one of the main streets of old Savona meets the sea. The tower holds temporara exhibitions from time to time but it is equally admirable from the outside. Impossible to miss if you are starting or finishing a cruise in Savona

This is right off the cruise ship so you can just walk to it and don't need a car. It is fun to watch the cars sizzling by! There are lots of panhandlers in the area when we went.

Nice photo op right by the cruise ships. An easy walk to this area which was very crowded the day we were in Savona.
