Imposing exterior in typical Genoese black and white marble. Outside, guarding the steps, are two beautifully carved lions. Are they sad? Compassionate? They certainly aren't scary.

A nice cathedral. Not the greatest in Italy but if you are only visiting Genoa then it is worth a visit. Free to go inside which is recommended. Wish Genoa in general could take care of its buildings a bot better as they are stunning...More

An unusually rich exterior on this cathedral. The textures of the stonework around the door was absolutely intriguing - so very different that the plain work of other cathedrals. The interior was dark and luxuriant. It is a 'live' cathedral, very much in use today...More

In front of the cathedral a large and powerful lion lies. Foots are enormous and the head, the body in proportions. But look at the expression: the lion is really sad

First of all, the aquarium. It's one of the biggest aquariums in Europe! Then you can see Porto Antico, with a Renzo Piano's sculpture and a huge ancient ship. There's also the Galata, the Sea Museum!
