Visions of Genoa : Italy

This summer I spent some time in Europe, and after a visit to France and Denmark and before a visit to Finland, I had a few days to explore new regions of Italy I haven’t explored before. I first did Turin and the nearby mountains, and then made it down to the coastline for a day exploring Genoa. I parked at the city center, walked around exploring the narrow alleys, went up some observation decks, and finally arrived at the pier, to visit the funky marine history museum. Only a short day to check out the highlights, but it was overall quite enjoyable. It was hot, and some areas, north-east of the marine, were a bit dodgy, but other than that it’s a city with an interesting atmosphere, and a bit different from other places I visited in Italy. Maybe should have lingered for longer.

 

For now, here are my photo visions impressions of Genoa.
