What you'll do
We will start the tour at the Basilica carignano and head to one of the biggest and best second hand shops. From here we will walk through the centre of town to three more locations and then continue towards piazza Corvetto to a final location. The walk is quite central and interesting. I can let you know about good places to eat and drink (my boyfriend is from here so I am well informed). For anyone who doesn't find anything I will buy you a conciliatory coffee and brioche at my favourite bar near the last shop. The whole tour should take around 2 hours depending on how long you want to rummage. I am happy to wait for you, and I may also join in.This tour would suit individuals and groups travelling together
I love second hand shops and I love a bargain so when I moved from London to Genova I was determined to discover where all the second hand shops were. Google showed me some antique shops, and book stalls but it was only by asking around and spending time in the city that I have discovered there are proper second hand shops in Genova selling clothes, books, paintings, homeware and equipment. Second hand shops sell better things cheaper and nobody gets hurt.
