Old Port, Genoa

3.8
#9 of 381 in Things to do in Genoa
Soaked in history and rich in local color, Old Port houses museums, movie theaters, cafes, restaurants, and shops. Renowned architect Renzo Piano redeveloped this area in the 1990s, restoring the historic buildings, like the old cotton warehouse, and creating new landmarks that have become the city’s biggest tourist draws. Take a long walk along the seafront promenade and be sure to visit the harbor’s biggest attractions, which include a museum dedicated to the city’s special relationship to the sea and a modern aquarium. Genoa remains an important port on the Mediterranean, and this busy harbor is filled to the brim with yachts, ferries, cargo ships, and boats of all sizes. Stop by for a bit of sightseeing, shopping, and fine dining. Plan to visit Old Port and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Genoa attractions using our Genoa trip planning site.

  • Great place, ambience makes up for the slow service. But the service is good when you do get their attention.
