Suggestions on Genoa

The Bristol Palace is the ideal solution for your meeting in Genoa: it is one of the most elegant hotels in the Ligurian Riviera, is equipped with modern comforts and enjoys a strategic location near the coast and a short distance from the main attractions of the city.


Genoa's Aquarium, one of the largest and most modern marine parks in Europe and one of the most frequently visited tourist attractions of our country, houses fifty-nine tanks that reproduce evocative Mediterranean and oceanic habitats, as well as Polar and Tropical ones, so as to allow over 500 marine species to survive and reproduce. Extraordinary exhibits allow one to view the secret habits of dolphins, sharks, fish of all kinds, penguins, jellyfish, crocodiles, the mysterious, colorful inhabitants of the Caribbean and Red Sea coral reefs. Moreover, a raised walkway leads to the world of seals. Special attention has been paid to educational activities and guided tours are offered for all grade schools. The staff's scientific expertise is constantly being updated through research projects, affiliations, and debates with major Italian and international universities, and with the most important worldwide research centers on marine life and habitats. Every six months a new subject is presented and exhibits and conferences on the topic are organized.


Old port

The old port has once more become the focus of the city's interests, no longer as a naval and trade center, but as a multifunctional tourist and cultural center. The area's current modern appearance blends both modern, functional elements with older ones. At times these older elements are interpreted in a modern key, as is the case with the futuristic outline of the Bigo scenic elevator, whose design was inspired by the mast of a sailboat. A large, rotating elevator takes visitors up to an altitude of forty meters from where they may enjoy a charming view of Genoa's Old Town and port. There are several tourist attractions in this area and possibilities to enjoy a show. Attractions include the Aquarium, Sea and Seafaring Pavilion, National Antarctic Museum, City of Children, De Amicis Library, Cotton Warehouse Conference Center, and an outdoor pool. The marina's old pier is now equipped with a modern tourist harbor that includes all ground transportation services and is suitable for mooring all types of vessels. Thanks to its strategic position, it is an ideal point of departure from which to venture on itineraries to discover the historic sites of Genoa and Liguria's coastline. It is also a point of direct contact with the rest of the world through the nearby international Cristoforo Colombo Airport.

Cultural Visit

Old town

In order to discover Genoa's evocative and picturesque Old Town, where, amid misty and shadowy plays of light, splendors and miseries clash within the meandering labyrinth of narrow streets, tourists and Genoa's citizens alike may choose an itinerary that best suits their fancy. Possibilities include tourist attraction itineraries, archeological itineraries, typological itineraries (covering Genoa's churches, museums, palazzi, votive shrines, or corporations), or itineraries focusing on one of the city's historical periods (the Middle Ages, the Fifteenth, Sixteenth and Eighteenth centuries).

Port Tour - Cinqueterre - Portofino

The pleasant navigation along the coast of Riviera di Levante allows to enjoy the wonderful and well-known places right by the sea: The Golfo Paradiso with Recco and Camogli, the enchanting Bay of San Fruttuoso, the Tigullio Gulf with Portofino, Levanto and Bonassola until the arrival at Cinque Terre Regional Marine Reserve. The journey permits to enjoy all centres (Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia e Vernazza) by the sea arriving in Monterosso, where a 3-hours-break is fixed.

Via Garibaldi or Stada Nuova

In 1716 the last building on the ancient street of Strada Nuova was erected. Begun in 1550, the street has been known as Via Garibaldi since 1882. The three buildings owned by the Commune of Genoa (the Palazzo Bianco, Palazzo Rosso and Palazzo Tursi) will all become part of a joint exhibit that will constitute the core of a "museum complex" that will focus on ancient works of art. The city's ancient street, Strada Nuova, is thus to become a true open-air museum, a masterpiece of Genoese architecture. The Website provides information on the street's history and the thirteen palazzi lining it.
