Genoa, Italy

Genoa may not be amongst the most popular cities, but it has got the quintessential essence of Italy – quirky narrow alleyways, red terracotta-roofed houses, gorgeous seaside villas, beautiful churches, designer boutiques, lively cafes and restaurants. Well, not every nook and cranny of the port city is perfectly sophisticated, it is rather decayed. Nevertheless, the city has grown more charming with age. It is alluring with its authentic cuisine – fish and seafood, historical and architectural legacies, and a beautiful harbour. Besides savouring the ‘Italian’ atmosphere in Genoa, a traveller should not give a miss to the Aquarium of Genoa, Genoa International Boat Show, Teatro Carlo Felice, Palazzi dei Rolli and Palazzo Reale.
