for more hotels in Genoa
|Genoa is a city and a seaport
in northern Italy, the capital of the Province of Genoa and of the region
of Liguria. The city has a population of ca. 620,000 and the urban area
has a population of ca. 890,000. Genua was a city of the ancient Ligurians.
Its name is probably Ligurian, meaning "knee", i.e. "angle", from its geographical
position, thus akin to the name of Geneva.
|Main sights - Genoa is one
of the oldest cities of art in Italy. Its main features include the Piazza
de Ferrari where the Opera and the Palace of the Dogeslikes are. There
is also a house where Christopher Columbus is believed to have been born.
One part of the old city, the Strada Nuova or the Via Garibaldi, was inscribed
on the World Heritage List in 2006. This district was designed in the mid-16th
century to accommodate Mannerist palaces of the city's most eminent families,
including Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco, Palazzo Grimaldi and Palazzo Reale.
The famous art college, Musei di Strada Nuova and the Palazzo del Principe
are also located on this street. Other landmarks of the city include
St. Lawrence Cathedral (Cattedrale di San Lorenzo), the Old Harbor (Porto
Antico), transformed into a mall by architect Renzo Piano, and the famous
cemetery of Staglieno, renowned for its monuments and statues. The Museo
d'Arte Orientale has one of the largest collections of Oriental art in
Europe. Other than the old city sights, Genoa also has the second
largest aquarium in the world which is located in the above-mentioned old
harbor. The port of Genoa also contains an ancient lighthouse, called La
Lanterna (i.e., "the lantern"). It is the oldest working lighthouse in
the world, one of the five tallest ones, and the tallest brick one and
it is Genoa's landmark. One of the most beautiful and pictoresque
genoese neighbourhood is Boccadasse on the east of the city.

|The Italian Rivera (Italian
Riviera ligure) is the narrow coastal strip which lies between the Ligurian
Sea and the mountain chain formed by the Maritime Alps and the Apennines.
Longitudinally it extends from the border with France and the French Riviera
(or Côte d'Azur) near Ventimiglia (a former customs post) to Capo
Corvo (also known as Punta Bianca) which marks the the eastern end of the
Gulf of La Spezia and is close to the border with Tuscany. The Italian
Riviera thus includes nearly all of the coastline of Liguria. (Historically
it extended further to the west, through what is now French territory as
far as Monaco.)
|The Riveira is centred on the port
of Genoa, which divides it into two main sections:
the Riviera di Ponente, extending westwards from Genoa to the French border;
and the Riviera di Levante between Genoa and Capo Corva. It is famous
for its particularly mild climate which, together with the charm of its
old fishing ports and the beauty of its landscape, has made it a popular
destination for travellers and tourists since the time of Byron and Shelley.
Many villages and towns in the area are internationally known, such as
Portofino, Bordighera, Lerici, and the Cinque Terre. The part of
the Riviera di Ponente centered on Savona, is called the "Riviera delle
Palme" (the Riviera of palms); the part centered on Sanremo, is called
the "Riviera dei Fiori", after the long-established flower growing industry.
