Old City of Genova

Recommended
Lying east of the Porto Antico, the old city is a picturesque maze of narrow streets flanked by tall buildings behind which the sky and the sea stretch off into the horizon. This lively, working-class neighbourhood makes up the largest medieval town in Europe: a veritable open-air museum of the Middle Ages! To appreciate all its charm, you need to wander about the caruggi (little streets) to unearth a façade covered with frescoes here, a historical shop or an appetising focacceria there.
