Charter Destination Genoa

Share this page

Often nicknamed La Superba, and once one of the great city states of Italy, Genoa has a proud maritime history making it a compelling destination for yachting enthusiasts passing through the western Mediterranean. Admire the city that stands on a hillside above the splendid harbour from your Genoa yacht charter.

As a cultural capital it benefits from numerous museums, some housed in palaces, and also hosts several cultural events. Be sure to make time during your Genoa luxury yacht charter to visit the maritime museum and the giant aquarium, the largest in Europe.

Genoa was the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and history lovers will appreciate a tour of the old harbour, Port Antico, which was restored to its former glory in 2004.

For more earthly pleasures while on a Genoa luxury yacht charter, the city boasts plenty of chic boutiques and a sophisticated bar and restaurant scene. The town is typically Italian in its design: lavish arcades and leafy piazzas, populated with fine shops and convivial pavement cafés in which you can while away the heat of the afternoon. Plan your Genoa yacht charter for a perfect pairing of history and modernity, tradition and innovation, all set against a picture-perfect Italian landscape.
