What you'll do

Our journey through Genoa’s history will start at Palazzo San Giorgio in order to discover some interesting facts about Saint George (the patron of Genoa), its relation with the city, Genoa's flag and England. Moreover, I will show you a lot of interesting spots in the city, that are the foundation of old stories and legends, such as Colonna Infame, Campopisano, Genoa's Cathedral, Porta Soprana and more by walking through the old town’s alleys, where you will have the opportunity to take amazing pictures to share with your friends. Did you know that there is a place in Genoa’s Old Town linked to Louis XII of France? We will dive also into that story and many others like this. At the end of the tour we will have enough time to reward ourselves by eating some Focaccia, which is a typical food of Genoa. You will receive a more detailed scheduling one day or some hours before the experience takes place, depending on the time you booked, so that you will have in advance a clearer view and organise yourself in a better way.

Frenk

I have always been passioned about history and especially about that of Genoa, the city where I grew up. I truly believe in the power and value of culture and due to this reason I have always practised the studying of the different cultures, art and history (also outside of the university) by reading books and participating to lectures. I know Genoa very well and I have been raised by people telling me stories and legends about it. I love my city and I know it as my own pocket, so I would like to share with others all that I know about it, also because I like teaching and making people discover new things. One of my main goals is to give you the perspective of a local, who grew up and keeps living here. Have a look at my Instagram Account: IG: beingfrenk

Where you'll be

During the experience we will walk through the Old Town’s alleys where for centuries and centuries dukes, kings, nobles and other people that made the history of Genoa and Europe walked. We will visit some uncommon places that you would hardly find in any city guide and that will show you the essence of the Old Town. The visit will start with Palazzo San Giorgio and end with Porta Soprana.
