Nowadays one has to discover the real heart of Genova, where the modern coexists perfectly with the ancient.

So, for example, all around the historic Lanterna are the spaces created over the old piers, and the harbor warehouses have been turned into locations for exhibitions and congresses, as into the seat of the biggest aquarium of Europe.

Genova offers many surprises: behind its sea tradition it hides beautiful palaces dating back to the XVI and XVII centuries. A city standing between past and future, nobility and people, tradition and innovation, discrete and cosmopolitan at the same time.

And above all, the tempting smell of its focaccia.
