The only reason for coming here was that we used this place to learn where things where in the city. Otherwise noisy.

This is a wonderful place to visit. Make sure you see it by day and by night. It is on front of the Palazzo Ducale, which houses exhibitions, and also a place of historic interest in itself.

In busy and crowded genoa, a breathing space. I liked it especially after sunset with all the building and the fountain.

This is the most beautiful Piazza in Genoa. The fountain and the surrounding buildings (mostly palaces) are stunning. At night, the fountain is illuminated with changing colors.

Centrally located this is a great place to start and discover Genua. The buildings are all spotless and the fountain is a nice place for a rest

This place is so nice but it looks neglected to me by Genoa and people of Genoa too. If something like this would exist in Ireland it would be great attraction. In Genoa, it is just place maybe for people to meet and nothing else unfortunately.

Should pass through it while you're visiting Genoa. You won't spend more than 5 minutes as there in not much to see or to do...waterworks not impressive, but nice

This is not exactly a place to visit but it could be considered a meeting/ gathering point. This fountain is at the heart of the city, it is not something special but it is still nice. It is close to everything, the cathedral, shops, restaurants and activities. I will always think of this fountain when I recall/ look back to... More

There are many stores to go shopping, a cathedral close by to go for a walk, and of course the big fountain which is always on. Nice to get to see lots of beautiful buildings.

Not something to visit but a central place that you might pass a few times! The waterwork is not impressive but interesting. There was ice on the outlayer of the fountain at 9 am! Brrrrr
