Abbazia Cervara

An ancient Monastery – now part of the Italian Heritage Foundation (FAI) – well worth a visit.

Ancient Rome

Begin at the top of the Colle Oppio to get a panoramic view of the Colosseum, Rome's most recognizable landmark.


The renowned Genoa aquarium (Acquario), the largest in Europe has displays about endangered species and biodiversity, though this always sits rather uncomfortably with the reality of captive animals.


The Bigo is a panoramic lift (elevator) by the old harbour, which offers views over Genoa and its waterfront.

Cycle the Ancient Appian Way - on a 2,300-year-old cobblestone Roman road past an ancient sepulchre and an imperial palace, following ancient Roman aqueducts and through Caffarella Park, a preserved strip of land in the Roman countryside.

Following the south coast west from Porto Servo, Cannigione is a coastal, traditional village well worth a visit.

Galata Museo del Mare

Galata 'Museum of the Sea' is a large maritime museum by the docks.

Galleria Nazionale di Palazzo Spinola

As you pick your way through crowds, the old centre can appear run-down and shabby, but it's clear that many of the buildings were once - very grand indeed.

Garden of Mortella

We heard reports of Captains describing these gardens as being an enjoyable and beautiful place for guests to visit.

The health & wellness Centre, and thermal springs in Poseidon Gardens are in huge sprawling lush green gardens set below a cliff with around 20 natural spring pools ranging in temperature from 28C -40C, overlooking the Bay of Citara.

La Grotte Azzura

Capri's Blue Grotto is known for its size, the intense blue tones of its interior and the magical silvery light.


This recommended company goes out of their way to accommodate guests - call in advance to book a personal guide for the last trip up the mountain (about 1700hrs).

Old Town

Genoa's old town is a maze of narrow lanes, called ‘caruggi’, sloping up from the waterfront.
