Monday was a taster of Genoa. It's a really big medieval city with an impressive collection ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Belvedere Alice Bel Colle
Beautiful rural village - friendly people, fantastic food at the restaurant, good facilities in bedrooms (no tea/coffee facilities though but that"s European) - tiny bathrooms but OK. Views are AMAZING over the hills and vineyards for 360 degrees! Nice & peaceful and can darken your room with curtains & shutters for a good sleep.
