What you'll do

Genova! they said...merchants, goods form all over the world, therefore PORT. Today as yesterday. Our lighthouse is a 900 years witness of our history.
I will tell you about the highlights and the stories about the places where everything is begun.
Starting form the Old Port we will reach the lighthouse complex, " Lanterna" as the locals call it, our Lady watching us from the Capo di Faro. It's a symbol, still dreamed by millions of Italians who emigrated overseas.
From the promenade overlooking the quays we can see and hear the " breathe" of the commercial port, an experience otherwise for seamen and port workers ( camalli) only.
Then we proceed with the 17thC walls and the Savoia fortress hosting the museum. Climbing 172 steps you will have a total and unique panoramic view from the balcony. A great opportunity!
Other things to note
On demand the tour can start from a different point ( accommodation, cruise terminal ) According to the pick up point there could be an additional charge.
The tour will be cancelled and refund in case of weather alert (level orange and red)

Meet your host, Sandra

Host on Airbnb since 2019

Welcome in Genoa!
My name is Sandra and I traveled in different countries for pleasure and work. At least I fall in love in and with Liguria, tough land but a special one!. Now I feel myself as a reliable guest of my land where in 1991 I decided to live.
I have worked in the tourism industry since 1988, and since 2003 as a licensed local guide. Private tours in Genoa and Liguria, mostly in English and Spanish are my core business. Give the culture and the local way of living to the " foresti" , as here we call the foreigners, is what I prefer better. Since 2016 I have been cooperating with the Lanterna Museum management, iconic lighthouse of our city, the oldest still in use in the Mediterranean. A special place, rich in old and modern history, where you can take the best photos of your stay. Some special perspectives I share with curious travelers only!
Waiting for you!

We discover the hidden corners of the Lanterna complex and the best pic stops.
