We stopped to get lunch and were so glad we did. Just an absolute beautiful part of the world with views of the dramatic cliff side. Food was cheap and amazing.

There are several attractions inside the port and it's close to historical quarters. Other than this, not much. There is no special view due to industrial parts around and there is huge traffic from suspended highway and nearby roads.

Given the historic importance role of Genova, I expected more, something close to Venice, for instance. Many of the old buildings aren't well preserved. Definetly there are better things to know in Italy.

Genoa is not a 'citta museo' as Venice has become. The Porto Antico is a bustling, lively place enlivened still further by the recent additions of la Galata, l'Acquario and il Bigi

Very nice to go along the pier and sit down for a while. Enjoyed the beautiful view of the city of Genova while reading, listening to music and to grab a bite!

Nice city to visit, if you go by car, watch out for motorbikes. They are a lot and drive like crazy. The old port area, the Aquarium and the Galata Maritime Museum are particularly interesting to visit.
