Enjoy some time in the beautiful city of Genoa

Located in the north of Italy on the coast of the Ligurian Sea, Genoa is one of the great ports of the world and boasting Christopher Columbus as its most famous son. With Hotels.com's help you will find plenty to explore in this magical city. Take some time to wander around the Caruggi (alleyways) of the ancient port, most of which have been unchanged for centuries. Visit the stunning Cathedral, the birthplace of Columbus, the Lanterna - one of Europe's oldest lighthouses - and the sumptuous Palazzo Ducale. Genoa's long history as a maritime power means that there are many fascinating museums. Some of the best are the Museum of Fine Arts, the Doria Museum of Natural History and the Naval Museum - which is really not to be missed. The coastal location of Genoa also means that seafood is a local speciality, but Genoa was also the birthplace of the traditional pesto recipe, and almost every restaurant will have a pasta dish smothered in the local concoction. There are plenty of day trips from Genoa hotels as well. The beautiful fishing town of Portofino is worth a visit, with its beaches and boutiques. The cities of Milan and Turin are also easily accessible by train, making Genoa a fantastic base for exploring northern Italy.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Genoa

Genoa is a cosmopolitan place owing to its long history as an international port, so the locals are used to welcoming foreigners. Take some time to learn a couple of Italian phrases and the locals will take you to their bosom in no time. One of the things to remember about Genoa is that it needs to be explored on foot. Guided tours around the old town are an extremely good way to allow the city's treasures to unfold, but random wandering will also be rewarding. Locals in Genoa are also sports-mad, and a visit to a UC Sampdoria or Genoa match is a great experience. When dining, be aware that most places in Genoa will shut down through mid-afternoon, but they will almost always be serving up seafood and pasta at lunch and dinner. Don't miss out on the pesto, but there are other Genoan delicacies as well, including the world-famous focaccia bread, which makes an excellent takeaway option for picnics by the sea. Swimming can be enjoyed near the city as well - but be careful of the local currents. Instead, wonderful beaches on the Italian Riviera are a few minutes away by car or train, where the sunbathing is always a delight. So relax and explore a charming Italian city with the help of Hotels.com.
