Discover the Genoa of Columbus, on this tour which takes you around the key sites of the city that relate to the famous explorer.
What to Expect
Genoa is Italy's largest sea port, and a city of contradictions: full of grandeur and squalor, sparkling light and deep shade. This walking tour will explain the development of the powerful Maritime Republic through the marks left by Christopher Columbus. From his parent's house and the district where he lived in his adolescence, to the Renaissance Palace, now a museum which exhibits his letters, Genoa is full of key sites in the life of the famous explorer.
Your tour will pass through the old town, showing you many of the most interesting sights in Genoa as you go, and your expert guide will explain their history and relation to Columbus. The tour ends with a gorgeous Genoese aperitif, a glass of local white wine with authentic focaccia bread, to enjoy on a scenic terrace overlooking the old town.
