Genoa Self-Guided City Walk

Genoa (Genova) is a port city and the capital of northwest Italy’s Liguria region. The city is known for its central role in maritime trade over many centuries.

As well as the Old Port with its wealth of history and charm, there is so much more to discover in Genoa. In the old town stands the Romanesque Cathedral of San Lorenzo, with its black-and-white-striped façade and frescoed interior. Narrow lanes open onto monumental squares like Piazza de Ferrari, site of an iconic bronze fountain and Teatro Carlo Felice opera house.

You will also see signs of the city’s most famous son Christopher Columbus.

Walking path distance: 3.5km / 2.2 miles with a few upward rises, but nothing strenuous.
