Genoa, Italy

If there’s something I’m really attracted to is when a city is built upon rugged mountains. Less exclusive than Montecarlo, but definitely with more streetlife and down-to-earth people, Genoa is a very rich city with some of the wealthiest families in Italy. The way the city was adapted to the mountains is a wonder on itself. The last thing you will see here is a grid-layout of blocks, so get ready to get lost. The best thing is that Genoa has a lot of pedestrian street and public stairways and alleys through the private buildings, and even huge tunnels for cars and trains, a detail that makes the city unique, definitely. Appart from the mountains, the coast of the city has its own charm with the marinas, the bizarre dark glass sphere, the Aquarium, and the pirate ship commanded by a replica of the god Poseidon. For a more flat place, you may also find interesting the Piazza Ferrari, who usually appears in the common postcard of Genoa.
