Trips to Genoa

Genoa travel

Gateway to the Italian Riviera, Genoa is a vertiginous town in the north of Italy. Its steep narrow streets and historic properties cling to precipitous slopes that rise up from the busy port to meet the foothills of the Apennine mountain range. Formerly a key maritime centre for the Roman Empire and birthplace of Christopher Columbus, by the middle ages it was one of Italy's most important maritime powers and today remains one of Italy's leading centres of industry and commerce. The atmospheric tangle of streets in the old quarter display evidence of the city's longstanding history, and former golden age through a multitude of marble-clad palaces and magnificent medieval churches.

Things to do and places to see in Genoa

Travellers on a trip to Genoa will find that most of the main sights are centred around the historic quarter, a web of alleyways that hide surprising architectural gems, grandiose palaces and mansions. Visitors can also explore the waterfront just in front, blessed with good restaurants, shopping and sights such as the Palazzo del Principe and the Galata Museo del Mare (Maritime Museum) and Aquarium. A walk down Via Garibaldi showcases the city's 16th and 17th palaces, eventually leading to the lively Piazza De Ferrari full of Art Nouveau facades, shops and performance venues.
