Short trip to Genoa: the boat show

Dedicate your stay to discovering the city too! Stroll through the alleys of the historic center, admire the Spinola Palace, the Doge’s Palace and the Cathedral of San Lorenzo and reach the Lanterna lighthouse at sunset for an unrepeatable show. But for your "marine" passion, the "Galata", the Museum of the Sea, is worth an in-depth visit, where you will have the opportunity to retrace the history of navigation, including nautical charts and faithful reproductions of boats of all kinds.

Francesco Petrarca called it "La Superba" and De André sang about "that thick air full of salt and swollen with aromas". Genoa wins you over with its simplicity emanating authenticity - and focaccia - with the mighty Lantern that silently watches over its waters. Stroll through the streets of Boccadasse, the seaside village with colourful houses overlooking the sea, and immerse yourself in the iconic Aquarium before contemplating the elegant medieval Cathedral of San Lorenzo.
