The name 'LE VIOLE' is inspired by a song by De Andre and is one of the three private rooms in the Old Town guesthouse. It is a 13 square metre room with a double bed, small and intimate, and has no wardrobe but two comfortable containers for luggage. Free Wi-Fi. The colour of the room is purple and pink. The bathroom is private but outside the room, directly opposite. The window overlooks a characteristic little square dominated by the Church of Saints Cosimo and Damiano, a splendid example of medieval architecture.
In the common area of the guesthouse you can make use of the fridge and a mini kitchen.

Our Bed & Breakfast is dedicated to Fabrizio De André, a Genoese singer-songwriter who lived and sang about Genoa and its historical centre. The B&B is called 'La Città Vecchia' after one of his beautiful songs. The B&B is located in the historical centre of Genoa, in one of the oldest areas of the city, near the Church of Santa Maria di Castello. We are 150 metres from the Porto Antico area and therefore from the Aquarium of Genoa. With a short walk from our B&B you can reach the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Palazzo Ducale, Piazza De Ferrari and Via XX Settembre (the heart of shopping). Genoa is a labyrinth, which you either love or hate, because in its alleys you can get lost, feel lost, but then looking up you discover churches, monuments, ancient palaces, and wonderful views. Genoa is contradiction, ancient, beautiful, charming and dirty, chaotic, busy! A mix of strong scents and smells, sometimes too much! Genoa is superb, arrogant and surly, but at the same time you also find hospitality, tradition and culture! . Genoa is in its typical dishes, its port, its markets, its bays and hills. GENOVA is 'Genoa'... and we LOVE it so much and want to share it as much as possible with everyone who wants to get to know it!
