Genoa, the largest seaport in Italy, lies on the shores of the Ligurian Sea and it is full of history and culture.

When exploring the city, you will see ancient architecture mixed with new skyscrapers.

The city is a feast for the senses, from the many beautiful buildings to see and delicious food to taste. You will find historic walking paths, specialty museums and ancient buildings to visit. One of your first visits should be the Spianata Castelletto, a park with an observation deck. From here, you can see the entire medieval part of the city and the sea beyond. The view is amazing, day or night and, while you are here, try the gelato at the shop behind the tower. Second on your list should be Garibaldi Street. Here you will see 17th-century palaces and you can get a glimpse of what life was like back then. Many of the palaces are open to the public, so feel free to explore one or three.
