What to expect

Prepare yourself to experience an unusual tour of Genoa's banks from Palazzo San Giorgio (outside). This historical building was built in the middle of the thirteenth century as the first Government Palace. Although few people know it, Banco di San Giorgio has made school all over the world, here were invented the issuance of bonds, the double match, the compound interest.

The visit continues with the Area of the Old Port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, on the occasion of the celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of the discovery of America. Entering the maze of "caruggi" of the historic center you arrive in Piazza Banchi, which was the ancient seat of the grain market that in the thirteenth century was renamed Piazza Dei Banchi, for the presence of moneychangers' desks under the arcades of the various buildings. In Piazza Banchi there is also the Loggia dei Mercanti that was the first stock exchange, dating back to the late sixteenth century. Nearby you will visit a typical small shop where there will be a delicious tasting of local first courses (trofie with pesto sauce and pansoti pasta in walnut sauce).

You will visit Piazza San Matteo and stop at Palazzo Doria. The visit ends in the heart of the city center, Piazza de Ferrari, where there is a beautiful liberty style building of the New Stock Exchange (outside).
