On your future trip to the historical port city of Genoa in Italy, make sure to consider employing our Genoa car hire services as your main means of transportation. Even if the city is sometimes shadowed by more popular tourist destinations such as Rome or Venice, it remains a great place to visit offering many types of attractions and sights to its visitors. Genoa offers a specific type of experience, a much more typical Italian experience, something more traditional as it were.
The city is served by the Genoa Airport which is connected to the city either via bus routes or taxis but in this case your best bet would be to employ our Genoa car rental services and have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport.
The city offers a wide array of attractions for its visitors and quite a few of them are rather family-oriented so that everyone will be entertained regardless of age.
One such attraction is the Biosphere; this dome-shaped building is a greenhouse located on the seafront where you can visit a miniature tropical ecosystem complete with exotic birds and butterflies.
A bit more on the serious side there’s the Cattedrale di San Lorenzo. The city’s main cathedral is rather distinctive thanks to its striped facade, inside you’ll find the Chapel of Saint John the Baptist which is said to be the resting place of the saint’s relics. One interesting story related to the Cathedral is the fact that during a bombing raid in the Second World War a bomb fell on it but failed to detonate.
Being a port city, Genoa features a lot of maritime influenced attractions such as the Aquarium which is said to be the biggest in Europe as well as the Galeone Neptune which is a ship built for a movie back in 1986 but it now acts as sort of an interactive museum where you can find out about the life of a Genoese pirate in the 17th century.
These are of course only a few of the many attractions and sights offered by the great city of Genoa so make sure to consider employing our Genoa car hire services in order to enjoy these and many more.
