About Veneto







Genoa Guide Italy

A city rich in art and a major seaport, of flourishing trade and commercial exchange, Genoa is one of the most surprising cities in Italy. Long ignored by conventional tourist routes, Genoa offers its visitors incredible attractions and a stunning artistic heritage.
Its medieval old town -- the biggest in Europe -- is an intricate labyrinth of alleyways, where among the shops, restaurants, and local stores, visitors can catch sight of the city's noble past in its 16th century palazzos, baroque edifices, and Romanesque churches, looming over the little piazzas.
The Columbus Celebration of 1992 inspired a huge project of urban restoration and renovation, restoring to the city an ancient source of pride: the area containing the Porto Antico (Old Port), the Aquarium, and the museum-rich Strada Nuova. Today this area stands as a testimony to Genoa's lively renewal.
