"the unexpected Art City by the sea"
The 113 hectares historic centre is one of the most extended medieval Historic Centre of Europe. It is a maze of alleys "caruggi" unexpectedly ending up in small squares. The Genoese spirit resides in these alleys, where different smells, flavours, languages and cultures have always been mixing together. In these narrow spaces, between the hills and the sea, the pride of rich merchants and of noble Genoese families was expressed by building splendid residences, where many works of art were collected for centuries.
The historical centre was declared UNESCO World Heritage in 2006.
The ancient portual area was redesigned by Genoese archistar Renzo Piano in 1992 for the celebrations of the quincentenary of the discovery of America celebrations.
The area became the citadel of entertainment and leisure time for locals and tourists.
Not to be missed the panoramic lift " Bigo" and the Biosfera.
Moreover the Magazzini del Cotone complex represents an exceptional location for international conferences.
