Piazza del Carmine, 16125 Genova GE, Italy
Piazza del Carmine is a wonderful example of Genoa's small-scale public places, where the open space is just as important as the building surrounding it. I love to have a coffee here while gazing up the steep "salite" (which blend road and...
Belvedere Luigi Montaldo, 16124 Genova GE, Italy
Pack a few slices of focaccia (and a half bottle of prosecco) and head up to Castelletto at sunset for a beautiful view of the lights coming on over the harbor. If you want to walk it (I warn you, it is steep!), take the staircase at the end of...
