James Martin - Europe for Visitors
Genoa, Italy's principal seaport, is easy to reach by public transportation. There's a small airport, ferries come into and out of its harbor, and its a main rail hub easily reached from France, Milan, Turin, Pisa, and Rome. The city makes a good base or starting point for exploring the first villages on our Italian Riviera travel itinerary.

Genoa's historic center is said to be the largest medieval quarter in Europe and has a wealth of churches, palaces, and museums. There are many good restaurants, shops, and Europe's second largest aquarium.

Join us for a look at the Italian Riviera between Genoa and Tuscany. The itinerary includes Genoa and La Spezia provinces of Liguria (see the Liguria Interactive Map below).
