Genoa is the capital of the Italian region of Liguria and the sixth-largest city in Italy. In 2015, 594,733 people lived within the city's administrative limits. As of the 2011 Italian census, the Province of Genoa, which in 2015 became the Metropolitan City of Genoa, had 855,834 resident persons. Over 1.5 million people live in the wider metropolitan area stretching along the Italian Riviera.
On the Gulf of Genoa in the Ligurian Sea, Genoa has historically been one of the most important ports on the Mediterranean: it is currently the busiest in Italy and in the Mediterranean Sea and twelfth-busiest in the European Union.
Genoa was the capital of one of the most powerful maritime republics for over seven centuries, from the 11th century to 1797.
#mynovgetaway Genoa's main square, a meeting and gathering place for important city events, is dedicated to Raffaele De Ferrari, the Duke of Galliera, a generous benefactor who donated a considerable sum of money in 1875 towards projects to expand the port.
In the centre is a monumental bronze fountain, crafted by the architect Cesare Crosa of Vergagni in 1936. The Teatro Carlo Felice and the building of the Accademia Ligustica di Belle Arti (Ligurian Academy of Fine Arts) that look onto the square were both designed by Carlo Barabino. Piazza De Ferrari is also bordered by the side façade of Palazzo Ducale (the main entrance of which is on the adjacent Piazza Matteotti), Palazzo della Regione Liguria (the offices of the Liguria region, built in 1920), and Palazzo della Nuova Borsa (the new stock exchange), one of the finest examples of Genoese Art Nouveau (1912).
Defined by many as the world’s most beautiful seaside town, picturesque Portofino intoxicates those who visit the northwestern coast of Liguria. This coastline is part of the Italian Riviera, which extends upwards from the luscious region of Tuscany to the Italian-French border and includes the enthralling rocky stretch, Cinque Terre. Centuries ago, Portofino was a traditional, small, secluded fishing village. Now, with only about 500 permanent residents, Portofino is pocket-sized and barely qualifies as a town. However, its streets and surrounding wilderness come alive in the warm summer months.
From June to September, visitors who want to sunbathe and relax in one of Italy’s most charming places flock to Portofino. The tranquil harbor is filled with gleaming sailboats and larger luxury vessels. The shore is lined with rows of quaint fisherman houses that vary in cheerful pastel colors and stylish bars and cafes. Sailing, diving, hiking, and exploring the coastline, which is filled with exquisite beaches and enchanting villages, are favorite pastimes. Hikers and birdwatchers delight in the immense natural diversity found in the area’s nature reserve, ‘Parco Naturale Regionale di Portofino.’ The vibrantly green and protected Regional Natural Park of Portofino is full of indigenous trees, plants, and animals, hiking trails, and incredible views of the gorgeous gulf and blue sea below.
Portofino. it’s small old city with long history as can see during the walking around there. Walk there in the center will takes only few hours - very nice park on the mountain near sea, few cafes with excellent sunset view, churches, houses, good small and big hotels around, and hundreds different boats, yachts in the harbor. Unforgettable atmosphere, delicious food and drinks can find here if visit to shops, restaurants, bars around harbor. #autumntravel
The city of #genoa or #genova in Italian is one of the best cities for tourism in #italy and I think it is also my favourite there. I visited it because I boarded on a cruise ship from the port of Genoa. The city is very big with skyscrapers and of course with an amazing old architecture and narrow streets. There is also a hill that offer stunning views.
Portofino is a small town on the Riviera coastline of Genoa, Italy. It is not far from the Cinque Terre. It is not as famous in Italy as the Cinque Terre but is a famous Italian town. It is known as the first Mediterranean town.
is said to be a frequent encounter with famous politicians from all over the world. The colorful houses are surrounded by turquoise coves, backed by mountains and greenery, facing the blue waters of the sea. The exterior walls of the house are painted with bright colors, pinkish green, pinkish yellow and light brown, which are in sharp contrast with the green hills and blue-green seawater. Sea, sails, green trees, boulders, bright flowers, small bars in the seaside cliffs complement each other.
The town is actually very small and can be turned over in an hour. The meaning of the rich town is that I can't easily consume civilians there. Prices are about two to three times that of other Italian cities.
Genoa is an ancient city with a long history. The Ligurians had already lived in the area long before the ancient Roman city was built. It was once an administrative district of the Roman Empire. It fell into the hands of Byzantine after the fall of the Roman Empire and was later occupied by the Lombard and Franks. In the 12th and 16th centuries, Genoa gradually prospered by the Crusades and established an independent and strong marine republic, and was named after Venice, Pisa and Amalfi. The Republic of Genoa stretches out from today's Genoa until today's Liguria and Piedmont. She has several colonies on the Mediterranean coast, located in the Middle East, the Black Sea, Sicily, Sardinia and North Africa. In the most powerful period, Genoa completely controlled all of the Tyrrhenian Sea west of the Italian peninsula, including Corsica. In the past, there have been fierce power and economic struggles with Venice. After the failure of expansion to the East, it developed to the west and helped Spain acquire the New World. By the early 19th century, Napoleon's expansion made the Republic of Genoa part of the French Empire. In 1815, according to the Vienna Treaty, the territory of the Republic of Genoa, except Corsica, was ceded to the Kingdom of Sardinia and later became part of the Kingdom of Italy with the reunification of the Italian peninsula by the Kingdom of Sardinia.
