Genoa is not one of Italy’s most visited cities, which is a pity as there is plenty to see in this historic town. The capital of the Province of Genoa, it is also the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and has had an important role in the history of Italian football.
The old town is rich in history and has many sites and museums, if you’re feeling adventurous you might want to brave the steep climb up from the port. Genoa boasts good transport links and is well connected to the Italian Riviera.
