Genoa, a restored northern city and seaport of the Italian Riviera

Genoa, a restored northern city and seaport of the Italian Riviera

  Genoa’s old port, also known as the Porto Antico, is now a renovated tourist friendly spot with cafes, restaurants and even a biosphere suspended over the water. For those who fancy wine bars try Taggiou (Vico Superiore del Ferro 8; 39-010-27-59-225; for red and whites in variety. You can sample a plate of 'i salumi' or an assortment of popular cheeses  with a glass of wine reasonably priced.

Taggiou's Wine list:

Vini Rossi
Rossese (Liguria)
Dolcetto di Dogliani “Il Mandolone” (Piemonte)

Vini BianchiFalanghina
Pinot Grigio

    Genoese are not fans of brunch. Try one of the many pasticcerias around this medieval city. At Tagliafico (Via Galata, 31 R; 39-010-56-5714) there are display cases with homemade croissants, bign├ęs (cream puffs) and chocolates. An espresso and a couple of pastries cost around 5 euros.

 Frecciabiancagoes from Milan to Rome with a stop in Genoa and Pisa along the way. It  follows the coast down the northwestern side of Italy, then inland via Pisa. There are night trains that connect travelers from France to Italy on Thello as well.
