Once the most important harbor in the Mediterranean Sea, Genoa has a long history as a rich and powerful trade center in northern Italy.
Venture out of the city with trips to Monterosso al Mare (Footpath Monterosso - Vernazza & Oratorio della Confraternita dei Neri Mortis et Orationis), Vernazza (in Vernazza) and Cinque Terre Trails (in Cinque Terre). There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquarium of Genoa, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cattedrale di San Lorenzo - Duomo di Genova, take a stroll through Portovenere, and don't miss a visit to Piazza Raffaele De Ferrari.

Plan my trip to Genoa with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

New York City, USA to Genoa is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from New York City to Genoa due to the time zone difference. In June, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can drive to Zermatt.
