  • The complex of Saint Augustine in Genoa (Deconsecrated Church, Museum and Bell Tower) is worth a visit more careful of what I could do myself on 14 September 2017. Some useful tips: 1) the complex can be reached by the metro (station in front of the Museum entrance); 2) the small cloister of which I'm attaching photos is gorgeous; 3) at campanile you can't rise forever (you must ask for time) and there are over 100 steps; 4) the Church is only open during events (ask first); 5) the Museum from what little I've seen is well worth the visit and you can take pictures without flash
