Enjoy this fascinating excursion through Genoa, a universally renowned Italian seaside town. A tour that runs through a "fairytale" city, reminiscent of the Middle Ages and where – according to most historians – the famous Christopher Columbus was born.

The capital of Genoa had its golden period at the cultural level in the so-called "Century of the Genoese", which has left us magnificent buildings, facades decorated with frescoes and stuccoes, sumptuous churches and precious art collections. Even its famous Renaissance street "Strada Nuova" was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2006. Enjoying strolling through its curious network of alleys ("carruggi") is a visit to the glorious past of the city. By the way, did you know that there is a reconstruction of the house of Christopher Columbus next to the medieval wall of Genoa?

Be sure to come to this magnificent tour. One of the best excursions in Italy, which will undoubtedly make you keep an indelible memory of your cruise. Book your place now!



Departure of the excursion.

Due to the refurbishment works at the Cruise Terminal of the port of Savona, ships will dock at the mercantile port. When you get off the boat, you must take the Free Shuttles, until the pedestrian exit of the port. There the guide with the "Shorexc" sign awaits you.

We will go from Savona to Genoa via the A10 motorway or Autostrada dei Fiori (Highway of Flowers) offering a panoramic view of the coast and mountains of Liguria. Approaching Genoa we will see its port, the largest in Italy in extension.

In Genoa we will start with a panoramic tour of the modern city with its streets, squares and monumental buildings of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries (Piazza della Vittoria, Via XX Settembre, Piazza de Ferrari, Porto Antico). You will also see the walls of the sixteenth century, the Church of San Esteban where, tradition says, he was baptized Christopher Columbus, as well as his house, located near the walls of the twelfth century. During the tour we will pass near "Strada Nuova", Renaissance street built by Genoese bankers of the sixteenth century and since 2006 was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The visit will continue with a walking tour of the old town in which you will see:

  • Ferrari Square. Presided over by a beautiful fountain, flanked by representative buildings such as the Teatro Lírico Carlo Felice, Palazzo della Borsa, Academy of Fine Arts and Palazzo della Regione.
  • Doge's Palace. Seat of the former government of the Republic of Genoa and residence of the Doge.
  • Church of Jesus. A jewel of Genoese Baroque art.
  • Cathedral of San Lorenzo. Keep the precious relics of St. John the Baptist.
  • Palazzo San Giorgio. From the fifteenth century it housed the Bank of St. George, one of the first public banks in Italy.
  • Old Port. Where are the aquarium of Genoa, Galata Museum of the Mare, among other sites of tourist interest.

This tour will take place through the suggestive network of "carruggi" alleys and squares that reveal at every step the immense historical, cultural and artistic wealth of the city. The visit of all these buildings will be exterior.

Free time.
