"Genua -to visit Chiara,Paolo & eventually Columbus" Top 5 Page for this destination Genoa by globetrott

Genoa Travel Guide: 747 reviews and 2,017 photos

I came to Genua several times, while I was working on cruiseships 1978-1985

and again in 2002 and 2003

There is sooooooooo much to see in Genua...

and so I may simply recommend to get in contact with the best travelagency in Genua :

Here you see Chiara - the charming boss of travel-agency "Pollon" and her always well tempered assistant "boozy bird"

and looking out of the window Paolo (utttz), wispering some final instructions and telling Chiara the latest restaurant-tips...

...as HE is always up-to-date and the real EXPERT about Genua - simply have a look at his Genua-page !!!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Chiara ( pollon ) and Paolo ( utttz )

    Michael, happy new year to you. Great page about Genoa here, which is still on my list. I especially like the Righi funicular as well as your two local restaurant tips.

    Good descriptions and excellent photos to match the description. We missed Genoa when we visited Italy in 2005. Advertisements offering FlyCruise package out of Genoa or Barcelona appeal, maybe one October, but will it be cold?

    I have bad memories of Genoa because it was raining and I had a sore foot, but your pages have made me want to go back. I had the best meal of my entire trip there at Trattoria Pino down near the port. Da Maria sounds just like it. Thanks Michael.

    Nice and useful comments to prepare a visit to Genua. Isn't there a maritime museum or was it closed?

    Wonderful pictures and info, beautiful architecture. The idea of renting that funny bike looks tempting, but ...LOL!
