"Visit the PortI found my..." Porto Antico Tip by Cheewa

Porto Antico, Genoa: 3 reviews and 2 photos

Favorite thing: Visit the Port

I found my family history.

My big grandfather borned near Genova in 1865. (Lumarzo)

I visited churches for to obtain information about him with a guy I met in Internet: Andrea Schenone. He was very friendly with me!!!

More Info (English at Bottom)

Estuve en Genova donde encontre informacion de mi bisabuelo, que me servira para intentar obtener la ciudadania europea previendo algun trabajo en Europa en el futuro.

Genova es una ciudad... No, linda no es. Tiene algunos edificios muy lindos, pero el estado de conservacion es malo (me estoy complicando el leguaje para la traduccion al ingles...:-) )
Me parecio una ciudad sucia... sin mantenimiento.

El Youth hostel esta en una montana y tiene una vista espectacular de la ciudad y el puerto. Por cierto el puerto fue remodelado en 1992 porque Colon era Genoves... jeje

**********ENGLISH *************
I was in Genoa (Italy) were I found info about my big granfather. With that info I will try to obtain the european citizenship.

Genoa isn't a pretty city, but some buildings are very nice. Unfourtunately the buildings it needs maintenance service. It looks like a dirty city.

The Youth Hostel it has a great view of the city, because it's located at the top of a mountain.

Fondest memory: The panoramic view from my Hostel and to wlak for little streets with Ilaria and Andrea.
