GENOVA A city of art and a metropolis facing the sea, Genoa grew around the port, a natural inlet that has always been a place of thriving traffic and business exchanges. Its antique heart, the largest medieval historical centre in Europe, is crossed by a tight network of lanes, where the multicultural soul that has always characterised the city history gathers. A visit to the Palazzi dei Rolli, on the Unesco World Heritage List, cannot be missed: sumptuous dwellings that bring back a little of the atmosphere that existed in Genoa between the 16th and 17th Centuries. Modern life is just a few steps away, in the places that were restored and renovated – the Old Port  with the Aquario, and via San Lorenzo, Palazzo Ducale, and the splendid via Garibaldi with its  museums
