What people are saying about Genoa

Excellent English speaking guide proceeded many interesting facts

Geneo or the vertical city as our guide described it. She spoke excellent English and was very enthusiastic in explaining the importance of Genoa as a Roman port and trading centre and the golden age of the Middle Ages. Via Garibaldi the residential street of palaces of the most powerful families at that time - the Rolli palaces now a designated UNESCO world Heritage Sites. It was fascinating to hear about the Crusades bringing back the relics of St John the Baptist in the 1100’s now kept in the cathedral San Lorenzo. Birthplace of Columbus and traces of his house. We learned about the origins of the first bank Banco do S Giorgio, it’s prison history and Marco Polo’s imprisonment. We visited the medieval city, historical centre, city gates and hidden squares of interest. All in all a very enjoyable explanation of the historical town

A great tour, great value and good company

Hi there, I found the tour excellent, and thanks for waiting for us at the beginning. It was a great way to see Genoa but it's up to you to go back in more detail to explore further. We did this with the galleries that we got free tickets for on Via Garibaldi. It is a beautiful city and this is a great way of finding out, and deciding which places you want to see in more detail. Like any walking tour always check the end of the tour and directions from there back to the metro. Also, the tour might have multiple languages so respect this, you can always take some shots or google the sites while you're waiting. For 14 euro, you can't go wrong!

The GetYourGuide tour was the highlight of our trip to Genoa!

We had only a few hours to explore Genoa, and our tour of the city with a local was such a great experience that we would recommend it to anyone visiting the city. Our tour guide, Pier Paolo, was not only a wealth of knowledge on the history and architecture of Genoa, but spoke perfect English and had a great sense of humor and perspective that added very valuable insights to our visit. I would definitely suggest adding this activity to your itinerary, and would also suggest directly requesting Pier Paolo as your tour guide. You will be glad that you did!

Through the eyes of a local living in Genoa.

Pier Paolo met us at our hotel and asked what we were interested in seeing. We said local history, importance of Genoa, older parts of the city, and other interesting sights. Some of the highlights were Knight Templar church and hospital, Roman road and Roman gates, old part of the city, old buildings' architecture compared to new, former palaces of wealthy families, and much more.

A perfect way to discover Genoa old town and its little streets and pl

Very good way to discover Genova and its city center. This city is full of little place hard to find when you don't know where to go and the City Guide was a perfect way to get more familiar with these littles streets and places. I strongly recomand :)
