Grand Genoa

Genoa (Genova) is a port city in Northern Italy with an abundance of grand buildings, fitting for a city called la Superba (“the Superb one”).

If Genoa was in any other country it would propably get more visitors. The thing with Italy is that the big three (Rome, Florence and Venice) so dominate the tourist market that other incredibly remarkable cities are left shivering in their shadows.
