Today you’ll get acquainted with an ex-pirate hotspot and the largest Medieval city centre in Europe – Genoa. This port city was once an economic superpower thanks to a huge shipping industry, but in the past suffered through plague, wars with Venice and political unrest. It’s been nicknamed ‘La Superba’ for its long list of landmarks and rich history, and today your guide will peel back the layers. Columbus’ House and the Porta Soprana Gate are just some of the highlights you’ll visit. You’ll also have an hour of free time to explore the city after your tour – perhaps tuck in to a taster of locally made pesto and famous Genoese focaccia.
