  View of Via del Campo
by Carletto76

One of the most famous "caruggi" in Genova, thanks expecially to a famous song by Fabrizio de Andre'. Not many prostitutes are still there (maybe none, who knows...), but a completely restored, wonderful narrow cobblestone street is still there indeed, with its wonderful buildings. The most famous landmark of this street is the old medieval Porta dei Vacca, which was the western gate to the town, built in mid 12th century and still perfectly conserved.

Address: Via del Campo
