Genoa has the largest medieval old town in Europe, enclosed by massive walls built in the seventeenth century to protect the port. The area in front of the old harbor is characterized by narrow streets overlooking the sea and from here, with the historic funicular, you will climb up towards the walls and forts built on the mountain slope. A scenic road, built in the past for military purposes, offers wonderful views of the city and the promontory of Portofino.
