The old town is a mix of old and modern buildings with very narrow or wider streets. There are nice and unusual shops and the bars are varied and lively. A real surprise considering that the city is not well known on the tourist trail.

Most foreigners would only come to Savona to board a cruise ship but they should actually spend some time in town. It is not as full of attractions as Florence or Genova, but it certainly has some interesting buildings, lovely churches and athmosphere
