Genoa ©
Once the most important harbor in the Mediterranean Sea, Genoa has a long history as a rich and powerful trade center in northern Italy.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Basilica di Santa Maria di Castello and Palazzo Ducale. Step out of the city life by going to Baia dei Saraceni and Grotte di Toirano. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Genoa: Santuario Basilica di Montis Regalis (in Vicoforte), Abbazia di San Fruttuoso (in Camogli) and Baia del Silenzio (in Sestri Levante). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Varigotti Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica della Santissima Annunziata del Vastato, examine the collection at Galata Museo del Mare, and make a trip to Piazza Raffaele De Ferrari.

To find ratings, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Genoa trip itinerary website.
