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.

Top 5 places to see in Genoa

A rich artistic and political history ensures that there’s plenty to see in Genoa. Here’s some of our top sights, from iconic galleries to lesser known gems:

Top 5 places to sate your appetite

No place is better to work up an appetite than Genoa. Wherever you go you’ll be surrounded by delicious eateries, and you can count on a great meal at any of the following:

  1. If Italy means pizza to you, try the Pizzeria di Vico dei Biscotti, a traditional pizzeria frequented by locals
  2. With fresh cuttlefish and ravioli in walnut sauce, Lupo never fails to amaze
  3. Antica Cantina serves Ligurian meat dishes and fine wines inside an intimate stone cellar
  4. I Tre Merli is a stately and handsome restaurant, but if you’re after a lighter bite you can enjoy focaccia col formaggio with a glass of wine
