Via San Vincenzo
Mo to Su from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AMTogether with the connecting Via XX Settembre, this road is one of the genovese's favourite places to stroll. It derives its name from the homonymous 1100 church, today incorporated within the Circolo Ufficiale (no. 68), but its real origin is much older. In some places, in fact, it joins with the Roman road which, leading from the Porta Soprana o di S.Andrea in the direction of the Bisagno valley, connected the city with the network of inter-city passages towards Rome. Built mostly in the nineteenth century, although many sixteenth century villas, today transformed into appartment blocks, still overlook the street, is is characterised by shops of every kind: from those selling electrical appliances, to fashion boutiques, to bakeries where you can sample the famous Genovese foccacia, or welcoming bars where you can have a drink with friends after your exertions, or a quick coffee to keep you going.
