Research on Genoa certainly did not prepare me for this absolutely delightful little Italian town!
Hilarious moment: taxi driver "where you from?" Canada - "French or English Canadians?" English - Good - those French are Stooopid, very stupid - I no like-a them!" and he went on and on about how snobby he felt the French people were - all in his broken English - what a hoot . First occasion to experience an Italian emotional male!!
Narrow little streets, oh we lack so much art work in our young cities - can't stop taking pictures - incredible!! Had fun buying a few Xmas gifts in wee shop. Had first Italian Cappacino in such a cup I Had to take a picture! Funny little hotel on third floor - elevator up so tiny we had to go up individually with our suitcases - right in the heart of the old part of town - fantastico!
It is definitely a port town which was emphasized when we took a turn down a street where each doorway had an "interesting" buxom 'woman of the night' standing 'at attention" heh...we moved quickly back to a more "appropriate" area! altho' the pictures could have been very interesting - heh.
Could have stayed here another day/night easily but we're off to Cinque Terre in the morning by train.
