This cathedral is one of the most attractive sight of Genova in a row on Via S.Lorenzo. Visiting the whole cathedral is not allowed, nevertheless you can see the interior of it in the entrance hall.

Nice cathedral in the heart of the city, unusual alternation of stones gives the cathedral a special look. The same can also be seen on the inside. Close to the cathedral are many restaurants and cafes.

Big church in the heart of the narrow old town. You can also take a look inside for free or eat a snack outside on the stairs in front of the black and white building.

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. Inside, a British bomb that failed to explode when dropped during WW2 is displayed. There are fine paintings and...More

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

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!
