Genoa Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


The birthplace of Christopher Columbus and capital of Liguria, Genova occupies a stunning location with picturesque districts huddled on the slopes of the surrounding mountains. The city revolves around its port (re-designed by the architect Renzo Piano) and the sea, to which it owes its wealth and reputation. Genova “la Superba” is a city of contrasts where splendid palaces and ornate churches stand alongside more modest buildings, criss-crossed by a network of narrow streets known as carruggi.
