Salita del Fondaco - From Piazza De Ferrari, Italy
Salita del Fondaco and Piazza de Ferrari are two popular tourist attractions in Genova, Italy. Salita del Fondaco is a narrow, curved stairway that dates back to the 1500s and connects the banks of the Bisagno river. It is filled with ivy-covered walls and features a mural of the late Pope John Paul II. Piazza de Ferrari is a beautiful piazza centered around the 16th-century Fountain of the Four Continents, in the heart of the city. Both places offer breathtaking views of the city's Albertis Castle, Ponte della Lanterna, and the waterfront. Visitors can admire the ornate architecture, lush greenery, and colorful monuments while walking the cobbled streets. Cultural events are often hosted in the piazza, making it a lively and vibrant spot to visit. Shopping, dining and historical sites like the nearby Galata Museo del Mare, the Church of San Siro and the National Maritime Museum are all within walking distance.
