Travel Tips from people who've been to Genova
What to say about one of the largest port cities on the Mediterannean? It's huge, full of traffic jams and especially crowded in the period of the Salone Nautico di Genova, the world's largest nautic fair, featuring more than 2000 boats every year. Otherwise, there's a fantastic aquarium, one of the largest in Europe and the beautiful city center with the shopping areas with all the best italian brands. It's very similar to Milan's via Montenapoleone. Beeing an industrial town, there's not much to see but it's great to visit the Salone Nautico. There's always on display the "Palinuro", the beautiful sailer ship of the Accademia Navale Italiana.

Definitely make a stop here if you are traveling down the Western coast of Italy. This little village is so pristine and charming you will not want to leave. We stayed at a campsite situated at the TOP of the highest mountain in town. We had a great view, and tons of privacy. The campsite's cafeteria goes all out for dinner - giving you 5 star service, and even better food. The pizzas are out of this world - maybe out of this universe. Ask for the waiter named Petrie - he is Croatian, speaks 7 languages, and will make you want to take him with you through the rest of the country.

I was in Genova passing by twice. The fist time I slep over and visited the city during the weekend - I loved it, a great city to see and to get lost in the streets, just enjoying the buildings and, if you found something to guide you, to know the stories and legends behid them :) Second time it was reallu just passing by, and during a working day. What a difference!
My advice: try to see the city during the weekend, you won't miss all the cars you'll find during the week days ;)
