GENOVA / GENOA / GENUA A visit to the harbour city Genoa is the right choice for everyone. A perfect combination for wine, food and lovers of architecture. Also a great place to enjoy museums, palaces, villas and piazzas. And a heaven for shoppers! And it is the birthplace of Columbus.

Genoa or Genova was Gayle and my last stop during our recent Italy vacation. This City is not to be confused with Genoa Nevada, where many members of Gayle's extended family live. We took the train in from Cinque Terre in the afternoon and flew out the next day. In between, we walked around, enjoyed the many cozy streets of the Old City, ate well, wandered in and out of stunning churches, and strolled through the old Port.
