The port of Genoa


Genoa is one big piazza on the Mediterranean Sea, and it shows the tangible signs of a history of merchants, explorers, conquerors. Not only, but Genoa's modern side boasts a futuristic port as envisioned in part by architect Renzo Piano. The port's old section dates back to the 11th Century, when a group of tradesmen founded the Medieval Comune. Then, at the Museo del Mare or Maritime Museum, visitors can discover the links between the city's ancient and contemporary soul, while at the Aquarium - the largest in Italy, no less - one can explore the wonders of the sea from around the world.
