  • Very nice to walk along the harbour Beware though the evening is unfortunately poorly attended and that you can see at any time of day!

  • Other beating heart of Genoa, the old port, after the rebirth of the Columbus celebrations in 1992 became one of the inevitable in a day in Genoa, day or night. Definitely some potential are still unexpressed, and at certain times the presence of certain characters can be annoying (especially if parking day silos ... that annoyance being chased by hordes of valets abusive .... in fact I stopped putting there the car, although the convenience would be rules ...), but the pleasant memory for the time spent is guaranteed

  • Genoa is super old and the port is the essential tour, has the climate, the people, can you imagine the amount of people who embarked to begin a new life here. It was so with the grandparents of my husband, so special! We love!
