A narrow street winding up from the Piazza del Duomo, it is lined with shops, cafes and restaurants. You have to step into doorways to avoid the cars that periodically come up or down so take care with young children. Worth a wander. The fountain...More

Plenty of activity makes this Piazza interesting to visit and people watch. Lots happening and plenty of shops and restaurants surrounding it. The mountains tower above the adjacent buildings and it has a great atmosphere.

We had quite high expectations from the capital of the old maritime republic. But it's now just a crowded, hot-spot for shopping. Plus the Duomo. If you like the cosmopolitan atmosphere in an historical setting, then go for it.
