Genoa is a city in the north of Italy; it is the main town of the region called Liguria.
Genoa is enclosed between the sea in the south side and the hills in the north side, therefore there aren't very large spaces: the city is crossed by narrow streets and the traffic is quite chaotic. Anyway it has also a fascinating place to visit.
In the 10th century Genoa was one of the four famous maritime Republics and nowadays walking around the historic city center it's common to come across medieval buildings and ancient churches.
Doing the sightseeing tour of the city you can visit the magnificent cathedral, interesting museums and the aquarium, which is one of the biggest all over the Europe.
