I know the merchant city has a long tradition of commercial activitiy, going back to the times of rivalry with the venetian republic, but I was wondering if there was an area where contemporary commercial activity still thrives. Where do the suits hang out, then?
The "banking" area is still surely in the old town or just besides it, all that area from Via XX Settembre down to the old-port. Main streets of the old town are very lively, tiny alleys are not, of course, but generally speaking the old-town is a safe and live zone, at least by day. At night it's better to avoid some tiny alleys. That area with skyscrapers (called San Benigno) by the port is surely more dangerous than the old-town, expecially at night when it's desert.

don't come to Genova in august or it will be totally dead, with most shops closed and few people around. In October there's a huge boat exposition (Salone Nautico), if you are interested in boats it's the right moment to come, otherwise it's better to stay away, it's a total chaos with traffic and it usually rains quite often... Spring or early Summer are usually great moments to visit Genova. It's surely not the liveliest city in Italy, in any case.
