Genoa

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Genoa is situated in northern Italy, and served as a major maritime trading hotspot for centuries. Its old town is the heart of the city, woven with labyrinth-like streets and dotted with architecture that harks back to Genoa's glory days.

Here, you'll find an array of fashionable shops, restaurants, and bars, as well as numerous historical attractions like the Romanesque Cathedral of San Lorenzo, with its black-and-white-striped entrance and richly frescoed interior, and the Piazza de Ferrari, the old town's epicenter. Its centerpiece is a grand bronze fountain, and the Teatro Carlo Felice opera house.
