Furthermore, reading the ten things to know before booking will allow you to make a truly informed choice and avoid unpleasant surprises.

The mediterranean atmosphere

The expression describing a welcoming and lively place as "a sea port" must have been coined thinking of Genoa, if not, it fits this extraordinary coastal city.

Located in northern Italy, this city doesn't seem to have much of the “Nordic” style: the teeming atmosphere of the old town, the narrow and lively streets, the colourful houses that climb up the hill, the sunny and cheerful charm, seem to recall the typical aspect of the southernmost cities. It might be the sea, the port, or its inhabitants, as soon as in Genoa you will find all the warmth of the Mediterranean cities!

A land of sailors and poets

You are in the city of Christopher Columbus, probably the most famous among the Maritime Republics of those times, as you can tell looking at the great port that welcomes you at the entrance of the city, but you are also in a land full of musicians and poets.

Getting around starting from the port

Our visit to Genoa starts right from the sea and its port, which was renewed a few decades ago. The port is not only a place for commercial exchanges and international handling of goods, but it is also an integral part of the city life, and a tourist attraction.

The huge aquarium offers to adults and children a complete and spectacular glimpse into marine biology. There is no shortage of restaurants, boutiques and souvenir shops, or you can visit the Sea Museum which has a submarine on display.

Nearby you can admire the beautiful frescoed facade of Palazzo San Giorgio, one of Genoa's most important historical buildings dating back to the mediaeval period, and now the seat of the port authority. Just behind the Palace, you can visit the House of Columbus, where the sailor stayed in the second half of 1400.

Not far from here, is the Villa del Principe, Andrea Doria Palace, a sumptuous sixteenth-century villa beautifully frescoed by Renaissance masters with Perin del Vaga, which hosted rulers of the calibre of Charles V. The luxurious noble house is surrounded by a beautiful Italian garden in which the main attraction is the fountain of Neptune that stands in all its grandeur, at its centre.

Art is a constant in the city and there are also great and prestigious museums of national importance: you cannot miss the Royal Palace Museum, a true splendour of stucco and frescoes, statues, tapestries, and immense halls richly furnished.

Another cultural gem is the National Galleries of the Spinola Palace, a true masterpiece, an aristocratic building built by the Grimaldi family embellished with paintings and masterpieces of the Renaissance period until 1800.

The city centre

Let's now enter the city through the colourful and narrow streets, the artisan shops, the small antique shops, and the old bars signs, or the many bakeries where the reassuring scent of the delicious Genoese focaccia comes from: this is the true heart of the city.

Among the most important buildings we mention the Cathedral of Genoa, a magnificent building in Gothic-Mediaeval style, dedicated to San Lorenzo as the name of the street in which it is located. Nearby, you will find Palazzo Ducale, dating back to the thirteenth century and today a huge exhibition space for exhibitions and artistic initiatives.

You are adjacent to piazza De Ferrari, a large artery of the city, on its centre stands the large gushing fountain, so dear to the Genoese, and the Carlo Felice theatre, a true national institution, built in the nineteenth century, for opera and ballet.

Genoa, an ancient city full of noble families and rich commerce, has a dense system of historic and noble residences that make up the Rolli System, a complex of aristocratic buildings in the historic centre of the city, recognised for its value and uniqueness by UNESCO.

Are you satisfied with art and culture? Then, treat yourself to a shopping break in the central via XX Settembre, the city parlour, crowded with boutiques and typical shops among which we recommend the MOG, the Oriental Market of Genoa, for those who want an amazing experience of exotic cuisine, to discover what comes from the sea.

Outside Genoa

Western or Eastern coast? Any choice you make will offer you an open coast and picturesque views in soft pastel colours. Whether it's Boccadasse, or Chiavari, Nervi, Camogli, Portofino or Santa Margherita on the East coast, or Albenga, Sestri, Varigotti, Finale, Alassio or Bordighera on the West coast, you can not fall in love with one of the most beautiful and poetic coastlines in Italy. Without a doubt, a car picked up in our Genoa airport car rental, will be your best ally to discover these small coastal havens.

Genoa preserves its historical centre with ZTL areas (Limited Traffic Zone): Caruggi narrow streets are off limits to cars unless they're electric. In this area access is therefore almost exclusively pedestrian. You can learn more by consulting the website of the Municipality of Genoa. We also suggest that you check the cost and time of parking on the blue stripes, which, for cars 100 % green, is instead free.
