Nestled in the folds of Liguria, Genoa offers an authentic taste of Italy. It’s not just the mesmerising food that draws people in, as there’s plenty for the culturally-minded to see in this ancient maritime city.

Discover Genoa, a Renaissance wonder

Genoa is one of Europe’s picturesque cities, composed of hill-top Basilicas and the florid gardens of imposing villas. You can visit the Old Harbour, where a famous aquarium and maritime museum await you, or slip into the historic city centre – one of the widest on the continent.

When your legs have tired from exploring you can sit back in one of Genoa’s comfortable cafes and enjoy traditional spaghetti with pesto – a local delicacy. There’s an airport and a railway station, which provides convenient links to Turin, Milan and Rome, should you choose to explore further afield.
