the historic center of Savona has small shops and some monuments and museums to visit. A break can be made between the cafes that summer and winter welcome visitors, even outdoors, on the streets and squares. Unfortunately the flooring is not the best, be careful...More

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.

The old city centre of Savona is not very big. There are a few typical streets and some of them are nice as they belong to a regio where you can shop.

This area is surrounded by commercial activities within the old buildings which have been established for a very long time

Darsena area is full of nice, high rated tripadvisor restaurants. Eat here and you will not get disappointed. Relaxed and vibrant atmosphere and Italian spirit are normal here. Admire big cruise ships entering the port - they are really a great to look at.

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

The best Savona can offer, its old centre! Walking in the old street called by the locals "caruggi" (carriage roads) will bring you back a few centuries. It would be a great spot to film a history movie. Many nice bars and cafes, and several...More
