Genoa

We walked into Genoa from the port on Sunday, 20th May. We enjoyed seeing the main sights as we wandered around.







There are many palaces in Genoa that were used to house visiting dignatories.  Every year they are open and you can visit for free! It was called Rolli weekend. Ma and I loved looking at the entries of these palazzos and even went into one. It is now used as a bank so there are desks etc which does seem strange. We saw the Palazzo Ducal and the Palazzo Tobia Pallavicino.








We then wandered further and came across this old church, the Chiese S Donato. Parts of it were from the 7th century. Just then the congregation poured out of the church. We think it was a First communion perhaps as many of the children were dressed up. We then went inside quickly to have a look....before we were encouraged to leave.
