Destination guide

Make like Columbus and explore his birthplace, Genoa

Genoa ticks all the boxes: a long history of wealth and power, picture-perfect architecture, fashionable boutiques, and exceptional seafood restaurants. It's also where explorer Christopher Columbus was born, although that has nothing to do with why this port city is sometimes regarded as the quintessential Italy. Book a Genoa vacation rental and do as the Italians do—begin your day with coffee, have a scoop or two of gelato when the sun is out, and go for "la passeggiata," an evening stroll, preferably along the Corso Italia promenade by the sea.

Things to do

Genoa and the arts, plus a virtual deep-sea dive

The Acquario di Genova is Europe's largest aquarium, where kids can ooh and ahh at over 70 exhibits featuring fearsome sharks, mesmerizing jellyfish, rare manatees, and some 600 other species of marine life from around the planet. A state-of-the-art virtual reality exhibit lets you "dive" to the depths of the ocean. On a street that was home to Genoa's one percent in the 16th century, three palaces form the Musei di Strada Nuova, where you can admire the works of the finest European painters. Allot enough time to explore the rest of the UNESCO-listed Via Garibaldi.


Palaces and promenades in historical Genoa

You map out your own itinerary (while having breakfast on your Genoa vacation rental's scenic terrace, perhaps?), or you can simplify things and sign up for a walking tour or buy a hop-on hop-off ticket. Regardless, make sure your to-do list includes wandering through the old city's narrow lanes (caruggi), visiting at least one of the Palazzi dei Rolli, and strolling along Corso Italia, a lengthy waterfront promenade lined with Liberty-style villas. You can also go to see the town lighthouse called Lantern, which has an adjacent museum that documents the city's history.


Warm summer days in Genoa call for some gelato

Genoa's climate is considered a combination of Mediterranean and humid subtropical; summers are warm and generally dry, and winters are mild. In July and August, the average temperature hovers around 76 degrees. The low is 70 degrees, while summer highs can climb to the low 80s. In the winter, from December to February, temperatures fall between 43 and 54 degrees, with an average of 49 degrees. Genoa vacation rentals are likely to have lower prices in the winter, but you'll only have a handful of hours of sunshine to enjoy the city's historical attractions.

Natural features

A walk in the parks of Nervi will calm your nerves

Genoa has picturesque nooks left and right (the washing lines in the old city's little lanes are debatable), but if you just want some good old nature, head for the seaside resort of Nervi, where the parks and gardens of villas from the 16th to the 20th centuries form a massive stretch of greenery. Extending along the Anita Garibaldi promenade, the parks of Nervi, as they're collectively known, are home to palm trees, olive groves, and agave plants. You can sit in the shade with a summer read, or visit the extraordinary rose garden.
