Unexpected Genoa

The first day should be devoted to visiting the noble palaces, named after the most famed Genoese families, then the most elegant streets in the centre of Genoa: via Garibaldi, unquestionably aristocratic and the symbol of the savoir vivre of the city, and via Sottoripa, once the haunt of fishermen and now full of restaurants and focaccerie.
From the port you can reach the historical sites of the city: the Gothic Cathedral, the Diocesan Museum and Palazzo Ducale, the Carlo Felice Theatre, the Ponte Monumentale and the Mercato Orientale (Oriental Market).
Lastly, leaving the Porta Soprana behind you, enjoy a romantic dinner in the picturesque Piazza delle Erbe and an after dinner drink in the famed Caffè degli Specchi!


Tasty Genoa

Set off from the Porto Antico (old harbour) towards the historical little shops of the city: pastry shops and focaccerie where you can try out fugassa (Genoese flat bread) and pandolce (fruit cake)!
After that you will be ready to go on to an area full of bars where young artists once uses to spend pleasant hours listening to live music and sipping coffee. 
But then your gaze will be attracted beyond the Porto Antico: gardens, endless panoramic views and much more ... climb up the Lanterna, the lighthouse that is the symbol of the Superb city, and hold on tight: the view is breathtaking!
Finish with an aperitif in one of the most fashionable bars in Genoa in the picturesque Piazza delle Erbe, while from afar it will seem that you can hear the melodies of the famous Genoese singer songwriter, Fabrizio De André.
