The province is known to have some of the finest medieval monuments in the whole of Europe, and whatever you end up doing for entertainment in Genoa; you will be surrounded by a charming medieval atmosphere. There is an undeniable historic and artistic heritage in Genoa which easily rivals the more famous Italian cities like Venice and Florence. Despite its delightful atmosphere, glorious surroundings and excellent coastline, Genoa accommodation is never subject to large tourist crowds meaning you can enjoy your holiday in peace.

Genoa; Things to do on holiday in Genoa, Italy

Genoa has a long naval history, with the provincial capital, Genoa, being one of the most important cities in Italy’s naval history. Throughout the province are a host of top class museums telling the story of Genoa, as well as many monuments dating back throughout the centuries. The city of Genoa is particularly valuable to tourists, packed with world class restaurants, informative and fun museums and a huge number of attractions, things to do and shopping streets.

The Genoa countryside is a maze of cycle paths and walking trails, both following the rugged coastline and into the hilly interior of the province. The Aveto Natural Regional Park which falls into the Province of Genoa covers some of the most beautiful parts of the Ligurian Apennines as well as three rocky valleys, perfect for hiking, cycling and nature sightings. The countryside of Genoa is very mountainous and unspoilt which provides the ideal habitat for many animals and birds. There are many magnificent natural parks in the area which provide endless entertainment in Genoa for those with a love of the great outdoors.

As word of the glorious coastline was leaked to the tourist industry, locals knew that things in Genoa would never be the same! The whole coastline consists of beautiful rocky coves where the mountains drop into the sea, with little sand beaches providing a perfect place to set down your towel, relax in the sun and have a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean.

Liguria, Italy

From the little villages of the Cinque Terre to the romantic Portofino or the beautiful flowers of Sanremo, Liguria is a land of fascinating contrast.

Genova, its capitol, is the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and was a powerful coastal town until the 6th century A.D., and has the European biggest and oldest pedestrian centre. Liguria is well known for the food, pesto a basilicum sauce that you can eat only here, ravioli, troffie, and very good seafood.

We are very close to Tuscany and the French Riviera.

The Tigullio Gulf is very nice, it has a beautiful 18 hole golf course in Rapallo, there are many boat trip to Cinque Terre San Fruttuoso, Camogli.

Liguria is easy to reach, the closest international airports are Malpensa in Milano, Pisa andNice in France. Genova has an airport but is for national and inter-European flights.

I am sure that all tourists can enjoy this not so well known part of Italy.
