STRIKING SPANISH INFLUENCE IN THE OLD TOWN

Between the walls of the historic town of Alghero it seems that you are walking somewhere in the middle of Andalucía. In fact, Alghero was founded by the “Doria” family from Genoa but in the middle of the 14th century the town was conquered by Spaniards and they evidently left here their footprint. You will quickly notice that the streets are first named in Catalan and then in Italian language. Local dialect is incredibly similar to the ancient “Spanish one” as they explained us at the  Tourist Information Centre.

The Italian Riviera Travel Guide: Genova

Coming to Genoa, at first, you do not know where to put yourself: there is a temptation to climb uphill, and wonder, watching life in the old houses stuck together. But first, it’s better to stay below: in fact, almost all “places of power” are concentrated there. At the sea edge, to which you steal for every time, roaming the seaside area, school history lessons are well remembered, on which we were told that Christopher Columbus was born in Genova.Do you remember this? A noble Columbian profile is found here everywhere: in the names of clubs, rides, eateries, medium-sized hotels and annoying advertisements. By the way, there is also a monument to a seafarer.

An Unforgettable Detour to Genoa

A leisurely walk along the old town with locals and tourists alike, a stroll down the seaport with busy men and women—it’s a beautiful and cold afternoon in the Italian city of Genoa.
