The Wonderful Genoa.

A couple of days are not enough to spend in Genoa to explore the city – there are lots of interesting places to see. Though the time I spent was so short, I can say that it is such a wonderful city. Just when I arrived and exited the train station, the statue of Christopher Columbus welcomed me. All my life I’ve only known Columbus as the discoverer of America – I didn’t know he was an Italian and this is his birthplace.

Palazzo Reale, also referred to as the Royal Palace, this is Genoa’s major palace.

Via Garibaldi. A street in the historical center of Genoa that dates back to the year 1550 known for its ancient palaces.

Chiesa del Gesù e dei Santi Ambrogio e Andrea or the Church of Gesu; located at Piazza Matteotti – unfortunately, I didn’t took the chance to peek inside.

Piazza de Ferrari is the main square located in the heart of the city and renowned for its fountain.

Spianata Castelleto or Belvedere Montaldo is a must-visit point of interest where you can have a 360 degrees view of Genoa’s city center.
