After the asphyxiation of the caruggi (narrow lanes), this fountain-embellished main piazza ringed by magnificent buildings feels as if you've just come up for air. Showcase architecture includes the art nouveau Palazzo della Borsa (now offices), which was once the country's stock exchange; the hybrid neoclassical-modernist Teatro Carlo Felice (bombed in WW2 and not fully rebuilt until 1991); and the impressive central fountain.
