The zone of Liguria that gravitates around the main city is characterized by the intense activity of trading, the exploitation of the sea, the great ports and shipyards.
But, unexpected, there are also panoramic zones in which the tourists can find beautiful views of the sea, or promenades, villas and parks, cities full of history and traditions, like Nervi or Voltri...
The landscape is dominated from Genoa, city with thousand contrasts. Here the sea has always been considered source of power, abundance, wealth. And Genoa, " proud for its men and for its walls ", as it was defined by Petrarch, has always taken advantage of the sea. Today the city conserves a historical center characterized by the "caruggi", the narrow streets flanked by high houses, that belong to its glorious medieval past and that lead to piazze on which there are noble buildings, porches and churches.
