Discover all the charm of the old town of Genoa, every weekend: let us guide you through the largest historic centre in Europe, replete with curiosities and endless mysteries.
The Tour sets off from the IAT (Informazione e Accoglienza Turistica) Tourist Office in Piazza Caricamento, opposite the Old Port, and winds its way through Genoa’s narrow “caruggi” (alleyways) and ancient squares. Some of the main points of interest include the Cathedral, Palazzo Ducale and the Carlo Felice Opera House, and the tour ends with a visit to the “Strada Nuova” (Via Garibaldi), a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Finally, visitors are entitled to free admission for an independent visit to the Strada Nuova Museums, Genoa’s main museum hub, which boasts a rich collection of masterpieces by Italian and foreign artists from the 15th to 19th centuries – with a significant number of works from the Genoese and Flemish schools – along with historical furnishings that once belonged to the Brignole-Sale family, Paganini’s violin, and the ceramics, coins, weights and measures of the old Republic of Genoa.
