      About This Genoa Tour

      Genoa's most famous son must have been pretty arrogant to ask the monarchs of Spain to finance his crazy voyage, but you'd never believe it from his humble beginnings: He was raised in a narrow brick house, born to a middle-class wool weaver and stay-at-home mom.

      Columbus discovered the New World at the height of Genoa's glory, when the city was a maritime superpower launching hundreds of ships in search of foreign territories and worldly treasures. Known as "The Proud One" for its unbridled wealth and stature, Genoa ruled the Mediterranean seas during the 12th and 13th centuries.

      From the pastel-colored terracotta villas dotting the coastline to the splendid facades of Genoa's historic landmarks, this sprawling city has plenty to be haughty about. The city's seafaring past comes alive on this guided walking tour, especially when you see the colossal walls built all over the city to deter Genoa's jealous neighbors.

      Wander the winding streets where merchants peddled trinkets and treasures from fruitful voyages. See the 500-year-old Baroque palaces of Genoa's most prominent families. Centuries after its seafaring heyday, Genoa remains a European Capital of Culture, and still has plenty to brag about.

      Don't mess with the pesto

      The Genovese are proud of their infamous regional sauce, and when in Genoa you'll see they go to great lengths to preserve its origins. There are strict rules and regulations about ingredients and preparation method, established by the government and the Pesto alla Genovese consortium. Make sure you steal a bite of the real thing.
