Genoa is one of Italy's lesser visited cities, perhaps this is due to the fact that when planning a trip to Italy there are so many places to see that Genoa never quite makes the top 5 list.
There's plenty to do in the city. From walking around exploring the historic sites of the old town (beware the steep climb from the port area!) - to educating yourself in one of the cities museums.
With easy rail access to the city and with its connections to the Italian Riveira we highly recommend that you add it to your top 5.
