    Punto Touring Genova: Well-stocked travel bookshop

    by BlueLlama Updated Jul 7, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the Touring Club Italiano's official shops (principally of books), this is a wonderful spot for travel enthusiasts and booklovers to pass half an hour or so.

    The shop stocks books and maps for the whole world, but the selection of stock focussing on the Italian regions is particularly impressive, both in Italian and English. This is the place to pick up a guide to regions like Molise and Basilicata that only get a slim chapter at most in most books, as well as volumes on pasttimes like snowshoeing and cross country skiing. I was pleased to buy a book on the Monferrato area of Piemonte.

    I also noticed books on regional cookery and the like. Very popular guides in Italy are the various annual editions of good restaurants, trattorias, enotecas and so forth published by various organisations. You can browse them here - and I'd recommend picking one up even if you don't speak Italian.

    The location is good too; located in the Piazza Ducale, you can easily combine book browsing with sightseeing in the city centre, and visiting this impressive building in particular.

    Open every day until 7:30 pm except for lunchtimes and Sundays.

    Supermercato Coop al Terminal Traghetti: Large Supermarket at the Port of Genova

    by rosata Updated Jan 6, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Handy for last minute provisions before boarding at the port including a pharmacy inside.

    After checking in to board the ferry with a car, park the car in the ferry queue and walk to the Coop to buy food for the journey (advisable).

    If you are a foot passenger, buy food before boarding.

    There is parking at the left side of the building from the road if you are not a ferry passenger.

    The best place in the area to buy supermarket items without driving out of town.

    Opening hours:

    Monday to Saturday: 0830 - 2100 (will check this closing time as last time I was there it was 2000)
    Sunday: 0830 - 1230

    Farmacia del Ducale: Farmacia - pharmacy

    by croisbeauty Updated May 26, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Experienced travellers never miss to add some painkillers in their luggage or medicines which could prevent possible stomach problems following altered diet. In case of forgetting it at home and need medicines or plasters against blisters, Italian Farmacia (pharmacy) could provide all you need for a pretty resonable prices. Even if you are looking for a drug that is issued only by prescription, you can buy it if asking in politely and discretely.

    The newest and biggest shopping centre in Genova is located in the "Fiumara" zone in the district of Sampierdarena. It was once an industrial zone, but it has now been rebuilt and transformed into a shopping and amusement place.

    What to buy: There are 85 different shops inside, from electronics (MediaWorld) to dressing, libraries and everything you want to buy! There are also 7 bars where to rest for a cofee.
    Open every day: 12am-2am
    FRIDAY and SATURDAY: Closes at 4am

    What to pay: That depends on you! ;-)
