Genoa Shore Excursion - This tour includes the highlights of Genoa's old town along with panoramic views over the city. It is the best option for those who only have limited time available.

After meeting your guide you drive into the city of Christopher Columbus. Your first stop is at the panoramic terrace of Castelletto where you enjoy views over the historical center of Genoa, the port and the Lanterna (lighthouse) which is considered the symbol of the city.

Next you'll enjoy a walking tour of the old town starting at the House of Columbus near the medieval gate of Porta Soprana. You visit the popular square called Piazza De Ferrari which is the contemporary heart of the town and includes the Carlo Felice Opera House and some beautiful fountains. You also see the Ducale Palace, with its neoclassical facade, which was the seat of the government of the Republic of Genoa.

Then you walk to the Piazza San Matteo, the best preserved example of a medieval residential quarter. San Matteo was the square of the Doria family area, and still maintains most of its medieval look, including beautiful palaces, porticoes, and traditional black and white striped facades.

Churches seen include Saint Andreas, which is considered a masterpiece of Genovese baroque architecture, the most important period in Genovese art and the Cathedral of San Lorenzo. Built in the 13th century, it is a good example of gothic architecture. Several renovations throughout the ages have also left their mark, and with the variety of art shown one next to the other your visit gives you a virtual course in Italian Art history.
