Piazza delle Erbe
Mo to Su from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AMCurrently undergoing a period of cleaning and restoration after many years of neglect, this is a pleasant corner of old Genoa, originally used by fruit and vegetable sellers. Today it is a meeting place for the alternative youth of the city, who like to stay out till late hours. In the centre there is a late seventeenth century fountain, built by D. Parodi, where the local residents used to draw water, which today is hidden by the night time crowds who frequent the square. There are several bars and restaurants where it is pleasant to have lunch or a drink, as well as interesting craft shops, eclectic boutiques and second hand bookshops which are worth a look.
