Palazzo Reale

Gritty, gorgeous and should not be missed if making a trip to the Italian Riviera.  I've written about it before.  But every time I return from a visit, I am more and more enthused.  Rich in history, architectural genius and delicious food, it is also "real Italia".  And unlike the more popular cities, it is not mobbed by tourist (although it deserves to be!).

Cathedral San Lorenzo

Strada Nuova

Palazzo Ducale

Palazzo Rosso

Bella Vita Italia is now offering 1/2 and full day tours of the city with a fabulous Genovese guide who will take you on a trip into the city's glorious past and present along with some wonderful "gastronomic" stops along the way.

Mom & her friend, Sara, in Piazza Ferrari

On my list of places to visit.

There is a new indie Colin Firth/Catherine Keener movie called Genova. Not sure when it comes out.

I've never been to Genoa. I love those two statues over the door, great muscles! ;-)

I've seen some clips of the movie "Genova"...loads of places I recognise, plus I'm a bit of a Colin Firth fan, can't wait to see it. Tracey.
