Piazza de Ferrari

Has a large public square is bordered by impressive sights that include the 14th-century Palace of the Doges (Palazzo Ducale).

Piazza San Lorenzo

Provides the breathtaking view of the Cattedrale di San Lorenzo, the city's beautiful 13th-century cathedral.

Porto Antico
This is the Old Port which was renovated in 1992 to celebrate the Christopher Columbus Quincentenary. There are shops and restaurants and an extensive waterfront access. I enjoyed walking along the waterfront under what are endless arcaded streets.

We had planned to spend the better part of a day to walk along via Garibaldi and visit the palaces of the 16th century. Many now house museums and galleries. But, as our luck would have it, there was a one day strike and no buses, the metro or public buildings such as the gallaries and museums were open.

We were able to walk around the gardens of a few of the buildings.

This all leaves a reasons to return.
