History of Porto Antico

After bombing during World War II, Porto Antico was brought back to life in 1992 for the 500th anniversary celebrations of Genoese navigator Christopher Columbus's discovery of the New World. Architect Renzo Piano re-energised the area with walkways and plazas, transforming warehouses into restaurants, museums and shops.

Family-Friendly Attractions in Porto Antico

Based in Porto Antico, the Galata Museo del Mare is the Mediterranean's largest sea museum, with four floors of nautical artefacts and interactive exhibits. Popular with families, the museum’s stand-out exhibits include a reconstruction of a 17th-century galley ship and a real submarine, which is moored in the port. You can also wander through the section dedicated to Columbus.

Porto Antico is also home to Italy's largest aquarium, the Aquarium of Genoa, which has a wealth of marine life, including sharks, dolphins, seals, penguins, manatees and more. One of the area's star attractions is the Bigo Lift, a panoramic elevator that offers 360-degree views of the coast from high above the city.

Whether you're stay in Genoa is with family, friends or your partner, Porto Antico is a top spot to base yourself if you want to be steps away from major sightseeing attractions.
