    Near Piazza De Ferrari, there is this lovely little square, dominated by the Church of St Matthew was built around 1270, with black and white stripes facing façade, a symbol of prestige at the time. Now is public, granted to the Municipality but was once exclusive to the Doria family. Gorgeous Interior, too bad the ban on photographing!!! Around the square, situated in an elevated position respect to the surrounding alleys were built other buildings, always belonging to the ancient village of Doria, worthy of being photographed and visited. A must see!!

    San Matteo Church (it - even a visit due to its baroque interior 18 e marble and white stucco, contrasting with the novel outside nour and white) faces palaces of the 14 th century of the Doria family. Nothing better to make a comeback in Genoa at the time.

  • Like the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the Church of San Matteo in Genoa is an excellent example of the harmonious fusion of Mediterranean Romanesque style typical of this area and the new Gothic trends from France

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.
