From its multi-faceted historical roots as a Roman settlement and maritime port to its notoriety as the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and Nicolò Pagannini, Genoa is reinventing itself as a major European tourist destination.
Genoa is a city that reveals herself slowly to the traveler. It can’t be rushed or seen in one day. Here you will find over 100 medieval palaces camouflaged among newer homes and businesses. Narrow winding streets and tall vertical buildings form an intricate labyrinth that connects different sections of the city and serves as Genoa’s core.
