What we will do
  • Columbus' House
  • 'It is a place that 'grows upon you' every day. There seems to be always something to find out in it [...] It abounds in the strangest contrasts; things that are picturesque, ugly, mean, magnificent, delightful, and offensive, break upon the view at every turn.' That is how Charles Dickens described Genoa in 1843; a town that still has plenty left to discover, steeped in history, intrigue and legend.
  • Our tour of the historic centre of Genoa begins at the Old Port. From there, our guide will take us through the criss-cross of typical alleyways called 'caruggi', in search of hidden nooks and crannies.
  • We will stroll along, pausing at the historic shops, which testify to the city's traditions and excellence in wine and cuisine.
  • Nearby to the House of Columbus, the final part of our walk, we will enjoy food tasting of excellent typical product, renown worldwide: Genoese focaccia.
