A Day in Genoa - Perfect 24 Hours Guide

This little Italian port-town often misses the attention it deserves. The town is privileged as it sits in the heart of the Italian Riviera.

Complete with its medieval charm, this town will sweep you off your feet!

With just 24 hours in Genoa, we bring you the perfect guide to what to see and do in Genoa.

How to Spend 1 Day in Genoa?

Let us divide the day into two parts. While we suggest you reserve the morning for checking out the attractions around the Ancient Port, the latter half of the day can be spent at leisure through the many maze-like alleyways of the old town. Start your day by visiting the Aquarium of Genoa (the largest in Italy and second largest in Europe). With more than 12,000 specimens to see and marvel at, this 71-tank aquarium is located below the sea surface. By mid-morning, you can explore the area around the Ancient Port. Places like The Neptune Ship (a submarine), The Lanterna (Lighthouse of Genoa), Via Garibaldi, Doge's Palace, Arco Della Vittoria, and Piazza Corvetto will keep you hooked for the better part of the day.

After a brief stop at one of the restaurants for lunch, proceed to the oldest part of the town, lovingly called the Carruggi. Lined with many beautiful ancient buildings, this part of the city has still retained its attractiveness. With its many twisting passages, you are sure to get lost in here. We suggest you carry a map along, just to be on a safer side. Later, walk around the Porta Soprana and visit many sights like Piazza de Ferrari, Cattedrale di San Lorenzo, and many more beautiful facades.

Later in the evening, visit the Caffetteria Lomellini to taste some of the best coffee and pastry in Italy, while you overlook the bustling town square. And do not forget to end your day with a huge dollop of Italian pistachio ice cream.
