This small church looks nothing from the outside, sitting on a small, non-descript plaza, but once you get inside, your jaw will drop as it's quite stunning inside. Well worth seeing and completely free to visit, although it is closed during the middle of the...More

Enclosed within Genoa's medieval historical centre, the largest in Europe, this Romanesque church and its adjoined cloister will plunge the visitor into the magic atmosphere of the past. Both the church and the cloister set examples of pure, astonishing beauty, but if you top this...More

We come across this little piazza and enjoyed interacting with local family. Nearly is a confectionary store that has been in the same family for generations.

Nice place to visit on a walking tour of the city centre. Impressive looking building head round at sunset and the colours are impressive.

Genoa is a labyrinth of little streets that seem to go from nowhere to nowhere. This will be the first square you come across as you leave the central district near the cathedral. There are very good restaurants near here.
