  Our Train
by balhannah

We continued walking along the Esplanade in Genoa and came across the little Red Tourist Train. My husband has walking problems, so we decided to ask about it at the Tourist Information Centre, which was just there.

After being given a map of the route, we thought it was good value, and went and bought our tickets for the RED TRAIN that does the CITY TOUR.
These are all the city sights we saw..............
partenza da Piazza Caricamento, Via Gramsci, Via Delle Fontane, Piazza della Nunziata, Largo Zecca, Piazza Portello, Pazza Fontane Marose, Via XXV Aprile, Piazza De Ferrari, Via e Piazza Dante, Via Fieschi, Piazza Carignano, Podesta, Ponte Monumentale, Acquasola, Corvetto, gallerie, Via Balbi, Stazione Principe, Palazzo del Principe, Stazione Marittima, Commenda di Pre, Museo Galata, Expo.

We thought this tour was good, infact, one of the better ones we have done. We saw heaps, and covered a huge area of Genoa, it really was an easy, cheap way to see the sights of Genoa!
