A route designed to know the essence of a port and mercantile city, to discover its intimate beauty and its incredible contrasts.
We will start our walk through the lively old town; along animated streets, where images of the Madonna peep at almost every corner and traditional shops alternate with fast food, we will reach the cathedral of San Lorenzo, that dominates, with its elegant Romanesque-Gothic structure, a context curiously nineteenth century.
We will take a look at the great Piazza De Ferrari, the new heart of the city, to immediately return to the “ancient” soul of Genoa, moving towards the sumptuous dwellings built for the Genoese bankers of the Golden Age in the extraordinary Strada Nuova, today Via Garibaldi, to admire the UNESCO heritage of which the city is rightly proud.
We will then go up to the most famous viewpoint, Castelletto Esplanade, to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Genoa, sweeping with the gaze along the Ligurian coast up to the Promontory of Portofino.
Entirely pedestrian, not suitable for people with reduced mobility.
Your four-legged friend will be welcome if someone can keep him company while we’re inside the cathedral.
On Sundays we may not be allowed to visit places of worship.
