The highlights of Genoa and charming Palazzo Montanaro, a historic private dwelling


Give yourself a special treat and visit the beautiful Palazzo where French writer Paul Valéry visited his Genoese aunt on several occasions. Thanks to the owners' hospitality, you will admire a marvelous and perfectly maintained 19th century dwelling with its original furniture, its beautifully decorated rooms and the unique old kitchen.
The discovery of Palazzo Montanaro will be part of a broader tour of Genoa, the 6th most populated city in Italy as well as its largest port.
We will take a taxi to the Castelletto scenic esplanade to admire one of the largest old towns in Europe, with its bell towers, its gardens, and its slate-covered roofs. A quaint elevator will take us downtown, where we will set out for a walk through the majestic Via Garibaldi and its remarkable Palazzi with their impressive foyers and courtyards. The tour will end with a short stroll to the splendid S. Lawrence Cathedral and to De Ferrari Plaza, Genoa's true heart

A Recent Review of this tour

Great tour with a fantastic tour guide. The highlight was the tour of the private home. Our guide was so knowledgeable, kind and patient (we had our 11 year old grand-daughter with us) . We saw everything in Genoa which is just a wonderful city. I highly recommend this tour.
