Genova, August 2008

Genova (611.476 inh., 800.000 in Agglomeration) is one of the big economic centers in Italy and the most important harbour city. An amazing setting, countless ensembles of beautiful Palazzi up to the hills, an extremely dense labyrinth-like Old town make Genova to one of the most exciting urban destinations in Italy, at least for me.

Thank you very much, very interesting selection.

Have you got some closer pics of the Financial District next to the Brignole's railway station?

Genova has a beautiful landscape setting, the city center is nice, full of small streets, some of them hidden. But there are still some butt ugly buildings of the '60.

I┤m afraid not, but where would that be? Around Piazza Colombo or the other side, east of Brignole Station?

Glad you liked Genova.
The theater is only Carlo Felice...he's not saint. You are mixing with San Carlo theater in Napoli.
Nice picture
