Genoa Guide

The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.

The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.

Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
