Genoa – Arrive in Genoa with an Introductory Tour of the City
The power and prestige of the Republic of Genoa date back to the 13th century after defeating Pisa for supremacy along the Western shores of the Italian Peninsula. This influence is showcased by the grand palaces, elegant fountains, and preserved waterfront. The Old Harbor offers a sense of the city during its height of power with narrow, winding lanes and ships that pass along the water at all hours of the day. Your private transfer will greet you upon your arrival at the Cristoforo Colombo Airport and escort you into the heart of Genoa to settle into the comforts of your luxurious accommodation. Your guide will meet you in the hotel lobby and will be eager to introduce you to the charms of the port city, ranging from the atmospheric cafes along the portside esplanade to the glitzy, gold-leaf halls of the Palazzi dei Rolli.
You can take your time examining Porta Soprana, as the preserved towers of the 12th-century city gates are connected to the childhood home of Cristopher Columbus. The small museum embodies a wide breadth of history that eventually affected the evolution of the Western and Modern worlds. In the small neighborhood of Boccadasse, the picturesque homes encompass the older, functional homes of the former fishing village with bright colors that have been painted across the facades. The small beach that hugs the city is also decorated with moored fishing boats. Restaurants along the water will fill the air with the aromas of simmering garlic and steaming mussels.
