Genoa, Italy’s colorful port city

GENOA, or Genova as the locals call it, is a quaint, historic city of Italy. Once our cruise ship docked at Genoa’s port, we set out to explore the city on our own. Piazzas, vias, museums…

Memorable tidbit: We missed the bus that would take us back to the ship (although, we still insist that the bus missed us!) The rain did not help, but we managed to hail a cab at the piazza. With some Italian words and hand signals to the driver, we sped our way back to the port – made it just in time!
