What are your thoughts on Genoa?

Jump to last reply

What are your thoughts on Genoa? Did you love it? hate it? and why?

If I'm not interested in museums, do you think one day is enough - as a day trip from Milan? Or would you give it one or two overnights?

And if you were trying to show Italy to someone who has never been, would you take her to Genoa or Bologna for a day trip (from Milan)?

I've been to Italy many times and am going again next March, partly to show it to my friend, but for me it's just that I like to be in Italy. My friend has only been to Europe once, to visit a friend in Scotland. We are flying in and out of Milan (not negotiable) and will start in Venice for 4 nights (3 days). Then we have four more days till she needs to leave, I will stay another week. So.... do I take her to Genoa as a day trip from Milan or would you suggest perhaps Bologna instead. Once she returns home I could go to Genoa, either as a day trip or for a couple of days. She's mentioned Genoa a few times but isn't sure why she's interested in it. I've never been so I think I will work it into this trip either with my friend or after she leaves. She also wants to see Lake Como. Since weather is uncertain in March I thought if we just spend the second four nights in Milan we could day trip to Varenna if we get a sunny day, and to somewhere else on crappy days.
