Genoa has some nice old building,however I would prefer the city without those modern towers in the middle of the old buildings.
btw what building is that in the center of this pic?It seems an Art Déco tower :?

Did you say GENOVA? :runaway:

Here are my pics!! :D

Let's start with a panoramic view from the port, you can see the lighthouse, which is the symbol of Genova, and most of the highest skyscrapers in Genova, in the districts of San Benigno and Di Negro. Among them the WTC and the "Matitone".



Now let's take a tour along the "Porto Antico" area, mostly designed by our most famous architect, Renzo Piano.

Answering to Phobos, the big "art déco" tower in the middle of Genova's centre is the tower of the Opera house, "Teatro Carlo Felice". You can see the neoclassical facade of the theatre in the 5th picture here above. It has been rebuilt around 10 years ago after it was bombed during WWII. From the outside it's identical to the old theatre, apart from that tower which is bigger now, while inside it's modern.

Love Genoan density, buildings, narrow streets, climate, geography...

sad though the lack of bars and cafes in city center, later in the evening!
