Genoa is a city of great natural beauty, with a priceless artistic heritage  

Monday, 28 March 2022 13:31

Genoa is known for its artistic heritage as well as its great natural beauty. Spring is the best time to visit the city and be enchanted by its many treasures. From the historic centre to the maze of alleyways that reveal unexpected beauty around every corner, and from the seaside villages, where time seems to have stood still, to the numerous historical parks that are oases of peace with stunning sea views. The City Pass, which is Genoa's official tourist pass, makes it easy to customize your vacation, allowing you to choose from a variety of themed routes, and to take a bicycle or hop on public transport without having to worry about buying a ticket or waiting in line.

Euroflora is a flowering of colors, events and culture

From 23 April to 8 May Genoa will become a multi-hued garden thanks to Euroflora, one of Europe's most prestigious trade fairs. Walking around Nervi's parks and museums, which cover an area of 86,000 square metres, you can admire stunning natural masterpieces, and 250 landscape architects, horticulturists, florists, and decorators are expected to arrive in the city to turn it into a kaleidoscope of figures and colours. The scent of flowers will pervade the landscape with its  centuries-old palms, olive trees, and maritime pines, as well as a magnificent array of Italian and exotic botanical species.

The Monet exhibition in the Palazzo Ducale 

The colours of Euroflora are echoed by the works in the Monet exhibition at the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, and a large lush garden awaits us at the Doge's Palace to 22 May, with 50 of Monet’s works  recounting the artist’s love for nature, especially in the last phase of his life which he spent in the Giverny countryside. There are numerous iconic paintings of water lilies, weeping willows, and the Japanese bridge which the artist depicted in numerous paintings, all of which are captured through variations of light, time, and season.

Don’t miss Genoa’s magnificent Rolli palaces

The spring edition of the Rolli Days is another must-see event of the season: from May 13 to 15, 2022, the UNESCO-listed Palazzi dei Rolli historic palaces open their doors to visitors, allowing you to walk through magnificent interiors, courtyards and gardens and admire fresco cycles, late Renaissance and Baroque sculptures, and fabulous art collections. The Strada Nuova Museums: Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Tursi, (Palazzo Rosso is currently closed for restoration), Palazzo Tobia Pallavicino, Palazzo di Francesco Grimaldi della Meridiana, and Palazzo di Nicolosio Lomellino, to name just a few, are all well worth visiting.
