Enjoy a stroll around the narrow winding alleyways of Genoa’s sprawling historic quarter – a UNESCO Heritage Site - where you'll find convivial bars, restaurants, antique shops and bakeries.
Keep your eyes peeled for major landmarks, such as La Lanterna lighthouse and the black-and-white striped San Lorenzo cathedral. At Genoa’s heart is the main square, Piazza De Ferrari, famous for its bronze fountain and surrounded by opulent buildings.
From the historic quarter, walk down to the revamped Porto Antico (Old Port), home to the Aquarium of Genoa, the Bigo Lift, a panoramic elevator, and the Galata Museum del Mare, before heading back for a rest at your pet-friendly hotel in Genoa city centre.
