Celebrated by poets and songwriters, the walls of Genoa preserve the testimonies of an illustrious past, of when the Maritime Republic dominated the seas and numerous peoples and civilisations alternated among the "creuze" and "caruggi", narrow streets and picturesque alleys. Keep reading

Weekend in Genoa, "la Superba"

Admire the Lantern, the symbol of the city, at sunset, and get lost in the streets of the historic center observing its typical picturesque buildings- we recommend Palazzo Spinola and Palazzo Ducale - before visiting the Aquarium of Genoa and taking via Garibaldi. Here, the particular museum itinerary dedicated to ancient art awaits you, connecting three historic residences: Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Doria Tursi. Finally, don’t miss the colors of the Palazzi dei Rolli and the beautiful architecture of the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, with its gothic façade in Genoese style.

Genoa

A bite of focaccia on the streets of the ”Superba”

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.

  • Stroll through the enchanting Boccadasse
  • Discover the beauties of the Aquarium
  • Visit the magnificent Cathedral of San Lorenzo
