Renowned as "la superba"

Located on the northwestern coast of Italy, the ancient maritime city of Genoa is renowned for its architecture, history, music, and art, as well as being the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. And with part of its old town listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, no wonder Genoa is nicknamed la Superba (“the Superb one”) due to its glorious past and outstanding landmarks—including the Palace of St. George built in 1260, the Lanterna (lighthouse) built in 1543, and the historic city walls dating back to the 9th century, of which Genoa has the most and the longest in all of Italy.

For more modern pursuits, there are fantastic luxury boutiques along Via XX Settembre, traditional markets in the city piazzas, one of the biggest aquariums in Europe, and of course, some of the best Italian food imaginable. Be sure to try the local Genovese pesto and focaccia!
