Ornella's home is now one of our favorite places in Genoa. It's sunny bright apartment with many pretty things in it, very comfortable and cosy. The breakfast was really nice too, Ornella made it for us even when we woke up very early, every morning she also made real Italian coffee for us that helped us to save energy during the whole day.
The train station, the historical centre and the port are in about 5-7 minutes from it, the best location to live in Genoa.
But what was more important - Ornella is such a great person, that its worth going there just to meet her. She knows a lot about history, literature, art and many other things. And she is so friendly, that she is pleased to tell you many interesting facts about some places, museums, the whole city. Ornella gave us a map and many great advices where we should go to.
Thank you very much for everything, Ornella!
P.S. And yes, she really looks a bit like Helen Mirren!)
We were looking for the appartment and heared a very kind voice calling us to come upstaires to her appartment. She told us some ins and outs of Genova and gave a map of the city.
Next day we stood up with the smell of fresh coffee and a lovely breakfast that she prepared us.
We had a nice time and recommend everybody to stay at her place.

We were in good company!! Ornella (who looks like Helen Mirren's twin sister) was a great host, she gave us many tips for exploring the city. Her cosy flat is 10 minutes away from the train station and provides everything for a comfortable an pleasant stay.
We spend a nice and authentic Italian stay.Beautiful and middle age apartment.
I'm the middle of the city with all the charm and inconvenient of living close ! To the neighbors !!!
We recommend and this apartment to authentic travelers that like meeting the locals.
Perfect for our stay.
Wow, what a lovely lady. Ornella immediately made us feel welcome. She was kind and funny. She is well informed about the history of her city and it was interisting listening to her. Ornella gave us useful tips about where to go and what to do. Her home is cosy, clean and full of interisting things. There even is a small garden with a great view on top of the building. We would recommend staying here anytime. It is close to the railway station and walking distance from several tourist attractions. We had such a wonderful time, thank you Ornella!
