With its stunning natural harbour protected by the magnificent surrounding mountains, Genoa is a fantastic place to start an unforgettable luxury yacht charter of the Ligurian Coast. Rich in sailing history, the bustling port is the supposed birth-place of Christopher Columbus, sitting beside a handsome vibrant labyrinth of avenues and arcades, palaces, theatres and charming cafés.

Beyond the docks you will discover ornate palazzo, fine churches and one of the largest medieval towns in Europe. Conjuring up images of cinematic beauty, the Via Garibaldi, a 16th-century millionaires' row lined with magnificent town palaces is squeezed alongside tiny gardens and immaculate courtyards back-dropped by church spires winding into the distance.

At the city’s heart is a pulsating centre of designer boutiques, charming cafes and authentic Italian roasted coffee stands and an impressive selection of museums, galleries and cultural events to enjoy.  For a perfect afternoon, take a wander through the colourful covered market set in the cloisters of an 18th-century church on Via XX Settembre before exploring the spectacular black and white Duoma di San Lorenzo which dates back to the 12th century and contains a series of ornate chapels.

Every October the shores play host to the prestigious Genoa International Boat Show, where a selection of the best luxury yachts from around the world as well as the latest developments from within the industry.
