The Grand Hotel Savoia is a great hotel. We've been lucky enough to stay in some of the great hotels of the world - the Taj in Bombay, the Cecil in Alexandria and the Winter Palace in Luxor and this hotel is right up there with them. It's not super luxe or super chic - it's just grand in the old fashioned way. Grand like you'd just want to stay in your room all day and read a novel and then descend at tea time and linger in the great room and read the afternoon papers

Carbon copy repeat of a previous experience trying to sail into Portofino - rough seas meant it was too dangerous to tender ashore, so instead we docked in Genoa.
Having explored the city on that last visit, we chose to still take a shore excursion to visit the picturesque towns of Sestri Levante & Rapallo
Ian had a holiday on Friday because it was Eid Holiday back in Oman. So armed with a picnic we set off into the Ligurian hills for a day trip.
The hills are lovely thick forests with deep valleys and small villages. We stopped for a coffee, as one does, went for a walk down a river valley and eventually stopped on ...
... at the top of a house settlement which was only surrounded by sky, so I knew id hit the limit. The views were absolutely indescribable, so intense and full of colours and depths which my eyes couldn't quite comprehend. These are moments I'll savour forever! The photo's dont do it justice! After 7 hours walking I was ready to hop on the train home. ButI'lll be back Genoa! ...
