Genoa Cruises

Genoa, on the south west coast of northern Italy, is one of the principal ports of the Mediterranean. This once powerful maritime republic, birthplace of Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) and now the capital of Liguria, has a fine natural harbour. From the cruise terminals in Genoa's docklands take a taxi or tour to visit Genoa's historical centre with the Patrician Palaces, regarded as one of the best preserved in Europe. From here you can also visit nearby Portofino and Santa Margherita as well as Milan, 130km (75 miles) inland.
