  • A typical Cathedral Italian with alternating of black and white stripes beautiful sculptures and some beautiful paintings on the altarpieces, although you have far. As in all Italian churches, be properly dressed, i.e. covered shoulders and bermuda to a minimum.

  • A grand and ornate environment with beautiful religious paintings and icons. A peaceful place with the smell of the burning offertory candles.
  • After an awed walk-around inside the Cathedral San Lorenzo, we had to take picture of ourselves. There were several friendly visitors to oblige us... ! !
  • Wonderful place in Genova. It's special to get in and pray to thanks for everything in your life. It is free but it would be nice to give some offer to the church
  • Black and white Marble is typical northern Italian and very nice. Inside the church is very open with huge ceilings and nice artwork.
  • Expect to see an impressive cathedral. The decor and architecture are really nice to see.

Where to stay in Genoa

Located just steps from the city's famous tourist sites, Genoa's centrally located B&Bs and hotels offer comfortable lodgings suitable for all tastes and budgets. To avoid the expense and stress of driving and parking in Genoa's central districts, look for a boutique hotel just outside the city center. Staying out of the busy heart of Genoa is a practical and affordable compromise, offering a good base for exploring numerous fishing villages located along the coastline. Hostels operating in residential areas also offer private parking and easy access to buses into the center of town.
