But one must not forget to pay a visit to Genova, the main city of Liguria. It has been one of the most important harbour in Italy and still is one of the main ones for cruises and commercial trades. The sea is an essential part of this town, the harbour is the living core of the city. The little streets of Genova are like vital veins, never empty, teeming with people: the facades are so close to each other and the streets are so narrow that is hard to see the sun. Genova’s beauty lies in its contradictions, a sea city, open to the world, but compressed in a tight hug of old palaces of the XVI century. Genova has the biggest historic centre in Europe and the squares, the historical buildings are around every corner.
