Genova: Italy’s Maritime Crown Jewel

Escape the metropolitan rush of Milan as you venture to Genova, Italy’s maritime gem. Genova, also known as “La Superba” or “The Superb One,” boasts an array of impressive landmarks that stand as testaments to its rich maritime heritage. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006, the city’s old town is a labyrinth of historical streets filled with art, gastronomy, and architecture.

Immerse yourself in the maritime legacy of Genova, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus. Its significant role in maritime history is unparalleled; once one of the prestigious “Maritime Republics” along with Venice, Pisa, and Amalfi, Genova’s ornate buildings and monuments weave a vivid tapestry of trade and shipbuilding history.

Portofino: Glamorous Retreat By The Sea

Sail along the serene Ligurian coast to the glamorous fishing village of Portofino. This picturesque hamlet, with its shimmering harbor and vibrant waterfront houses, is a favorite retreat for celebrities and tourists alike. Its Roman moniker, Portus Delphini (Port of the Dolphin), pays homage to the myriad of dolphins that frequented the Tigullian Gulf.

Relax and rejuvenate in the charming harbor of Portofino, where colorful fishing boats and houses dot the landscape. Lose yourself in the scenic splendor of this idyllic coastal village, and let the tranquility of the sea wash over you.

Santa Margherita Ligure: An Idyllic Maritime Haven

Culminate your journey in Santa Margherita Ligure, a picturesque hamlet where the maritime landscape and the turquoise sea blend seamlessly with the verdant Ligurian hills. Watch as colorful fishing boats bob gently in the harbor, and experience a sense of timelessness as the quaint fishermen’s houses transport you back to a less hurried era.

  • Experience the historic allure of Genova, rich with maritime monuments and tributes to Christopher Columbus.
  • Revel in the sight of stunning landmarks such as San Lorenzo Cathedral, the Palace of the Doges, and the Royal Palace.
  • Enjoy a scenic drive along the tranquil Ligurian Coast away from Milan’s frenetic pace.
