Genoa... Even those who have never been to Italy have heard of the city. This city is surrounded by a legendary past. It was the birthplace of Christopher Columbus and Marco Polo. Today it is the largest Italian seaport and an important tourist center. There are many old narrow streets that you can walk along and feel the spirit of the Middle Ages.
Here you can find such popular tourist sights as:
It is worth a walk along Piazza De Ferrari with a round fountain, along the picturesque Corso promenade. For those who want to enjoy the views of the Old City and port from a height, Bigo panoramic elevator is available. The panoramic elevator cab rises to a 40-meter level. For those who have little time, this "amusement" can replace a observation excursion of the city.
You can't imagine visiting Genoa without getting to know the Le Strade Nuove and the system of the Palazzi dei Rolli. This is a complex of several dozen palaces built in 16th-18th centuries. The luxury buildings are designed in the same style. The unique quarter is included in UNESCO World Heritage Site. English-speaking guide will help you find out interesting facts about each building.
Of particular interest is Aquarium of Genoa, which contains more than 10 thousand marine inhabitants. The structure is located on the territory of old port. Just two hundred meters from structure is another attraction - amazing botanical garden-museum "Biosphere". Museum has the appearance of a huge glass ball, frozen over the sea surface. Inside the museum, a corner of South American tropics is recreated. These objects should also be included in your tour itinerary during your trip to Genoa.
Guests can always choose a convenient excursion in English language with a personal guide on "Excurzilla". The price will depend on season and number of people in group.
