If you are in Liguria, you cannot miss Genoa. It is the region's capital, and it has really a lot to offer. Genoa is a destination every tourist should put in their itinerary: apart from the peculiar historical centre and its beauty, Genoa can be appreciated by walking through the streets or along the boardwalk, and it always has a surprise for its visitors.
You will be fascinated by the Strade Nuove and the Palazzi dei Rolli: Unesco heritage, this site will leave you breathless: it consists of a group of streets built by the Genoese aristocracy between the 15th and 16th century, and of palaces where important state visitors were hosted.
Their beauty, made of loggias, courts and open staircases around the gardens, is universally acknowledged.
The majestic Aquarium is Italy's biggest one and one of the most important ones in Europe (it is third in surface); Genoa's Aquarium is visited by over a million and two hundred thousand people each year. A visit to this wonderful place is imperative if you are fascinated by sea creatures.
