One weekend in Genoa is of course too short to internalize the city so I prefer to show you my not so deep impressions of Genoa through pictures:
It is very charming. There is one street just full of abandoned broken-down palaces. (below). It is really not so difficult to imagine how beautiful they used to be.
Of course, ensuring my return to this region is the cuisine. The picture below is a pasta dish with walnut sauce which is one of the dishes we tried at Restaurant Da Gaia (Vico dell'Argento,Genoa).I highly recommend this restaurant if you want to sample typical Ligurian cuisine.Yummy!
