Genova – Historic Shops and craft

The charm of old “Zena” (the name of Genova in local dialect) survives in the old shops.

Walking through the historic area of Genoa you may come across its beautiful historic shops that tell history and preserve all its charm intact. Butchers’ shops, grocery stores, confectioners’ shops, fried food shops, but also shops selling furniture, craft products, quality tailors’ shops and pharmacies with old remedies will allure you and allow you to know better the maze of caruggi (the narrow alleys) that contains in itself the Middle Ages and the Risorgimento.

There are 21 shops that belong to the “regional list of historic shops”, including shops that have been in activity for over 70 years and satisfy a whole series of requisites imposed by the Superintendence for the Architectural Heritage. Another fifty are waiting for evaluation by a team of experts.
