Genoa With a rich Maritime and commercial history, the port town of Genoa is often overlooked as just a stepping off point for the area. The city’s origins date back to the pre Phoenician era and offer a wealth of cultural and historic highlights for its visitors. The La Strade Nuove and Palazzi dei Rolli areas of the old town are inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage lists and there are numerous examples of classical Renaissance and Byzantine architecture in the forms of churches, the lighthouse and the famous landmark, the medieval gates.
