Get to know Genoa with Viator
As Italy’s largest port, Genoa is often used as a jumping-off point for the Italian Riviera, but this historic maritime republic has pleasures of its own. The compelling old town houses UNESCO-listed Renaissance palaces and the caruggi—Genoa’s once-gritty (now revitalized) warren of alleyways—and the harbor boasts modern museums and eateries. The city may not flaunt its charms, but it does offer a unique sense of discovery for those who pause to explore.
