Genoa, also known as the "City of the Lantern" from the name of the lighthouse located on the edge of the harbor, is a city rich in art and monuments overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea.
For more than eight centuries, the Republic of Genoa was thriving and economically solid land, thanks to trade and a powerful naval fleet. The city is the birthplace of important historical personalities such as Christopher Columbus, Giuseppe Mazzini and Goffredo Mameli. Today Genoa is a popular tourist destination for its cultural and artistic heritage, among which are some of the most beautiful Palaces in Europe. During the visit of the city you cannot miss taking a stroll through the picturesque streets around the harbor to discover the typical fishing villages like ‘Boccadasse’, with its picturesque multicolored boats.
Well worth a visit is also the Aquarium of Genoa, the largest aquarium in Italy, which has five large tanks, viewed from both floors of the building, that are home to dolphins, sharks, seals, sea cows and turtles.
