We enjoyed walking around in Genoa. Via Garibadi is a nice street in the old town with many nice shops and small good restaurants. This is also close to the harbour area.

A prime place to visit with art collections in the three palazzo, Rosso, Bianco and Tursi. It is mainly pedestrianised and lined with beautiful buildings.

Excellent introduction to the city when you get out of the train station and dive into the city. Try enter an visit the university buildings along the way, they are open and welcoming. The one of philosophy has a great staircase.

Via Garibaldi is a Very Beautiful Street with Many Beautiful Palazzo Buildings on either side, some of which are a museum to which you can gain entrance.
