    Destination Genova

    Genova has been the European Capital of Culture, the official site of the Summit G8 and the place of great international events, such us the International Boat Show and the exhibition Euroflora.

    It has an international Airport located just 15 minutes form the city centre, an efficient railway system and a motorway network that connect the city with the major Italian and European towns. 

    The first encounter with Genova is always an emotional experience: especially when you arrive by air or by sea and you look at the fabulous panorama of this urban amphitheatre rising from the water.

    Genova is a very active and lively city, with many different souls, addressed to the future and innovation, always in the forefront but with respect for culture and traditions.
