One of Italy’s largest cities, Genoa’s rich history can be traced to pre-Roman times. A thriving seaport and a powerful trading center, Liguria’s capital has always been an outward looking place with a keen sense of discovery. Christopher Columbus was born here and Niccolò Paganini—the most celebrated violin virtuoso of his time (1872-1840)— found inspiration in Genoa’s lyrical cityscapes. Genoa’s Old Town is one of the largest medieval old towns in Europe. A tangle of narrow alleyways gives way to resplendent squares lined with lavish palaces, atmospheric churches, and Renaissance mansions. There’s a sprinkling of fine museums and cultural institutions that celebrate the heroes of Genoa’s golden age in addition to the city’s modern visionaries: Museum of Natural History; the Museum of Modern Art; the National Ligurian Gallery at the Spinola Palace; and the Museum at the Prince’s Palace.
