Exploring GENOA, ITALY | This City Is Fascinating!



  1. Real European Union with incredible richness , power of artisanship, art, culture, capabilities to produce powerfull machines always commence from Italy, continues towards France, Spain, Portugal with all of those countries' warmness, tenderness, feel of beauty and extreme attractiveness in me. Those are my thoughts whenever I return back to any big city of Turkey from those places visited. Always in love with roman empire states and cities, always in my head.

  2. Went to Genoa in May this year. Fantastic little city. The people are really proud of it and want to keep it clean and the harbour plastic free. Not joking, on the Porto Antico there's a bin every 3 metres.

    I was super lucky that the entire time I was there there was a Slow Food fish festival going on. People from all over the world were selling fish, pasta, gelato and loads and loads of different beers from Italy.

    Great place and relatively cheap. Will definitely go again.

  3. For those who are wondering to visit this wonderful city I'd suggest to do not come here cuz we hate foresti that goes for milanesi and torinesi as well that cause a lot of traffic making u late to work

  4. Sadly, you missed Piazza DeFerrari, the one you saw was Piazza Matteotti, you'd have seen the main plaza if you've turned left after Piazza Matteotti instead of proceeding right… 🙁

  5. the historical centre sucks, there are so many south Americans and Africans, Italians there, are a minority. I know that some people find alleys intriguing, but I hate them, in the evening they could be dangerous too. Everything stinks, and all groceries that are led by foreigners sell fake Italian food.

    on behalf of all genoeses

  6. Hello! Thank you for presenting my Genoa. You presented the historic center of Genoa, but you had to continue on that road, it was even more beautiful! If it happens you go to the Ligurian Riviera. Hello!
