Your key to the heart of the City

Discover Genoa with a licensed local tour guide for a truly worthwhile experience

Multifaceted like a diamond, kissed by the sea and embraced by the mountains, Genoa is the guardian of countless hidden treasures. With its fascinating charm and incredible artistic heritage, Genoa is home to the largest medieval centre in Europe. With part of the old town a UNESCO site, the ‘Superba’ is an intricate maze of alleys where you can breathe in the noble past of the city, its shops, restaurants and workshops. Lose your way between sixteenth-century buildings and their amazing frescoes, baroque newsstands, and enchanting churches overlooking picturesque squares, and let yourself be tempted by the irresistible smell of focaccia. As you discover this unique mix, you will mingle with the locals and have the chance to really experience Italians’ daily life.

Anna Ardito

After completing my studies I left for South America just like Columbus, and fell in love with Brazil and its people. I started accompanying groups of tourists, Brazilians in particular, around Italy and Europe, collecting unforgettable memories. But home was calling me, and Genoa became one of my greatest passions. Together we will explore the alleyways, buildings and most hidden and unexpected corners of the city on a journey full of wonder and surprise.

From Genoa to the UK and back to Genoa again: this is the story that led me to devote my life to tourism and hospitality. I travelled for many years, working as a tour guide, but when I returned to Genoa there was no looking back. I fell in love with my hometown as if I had only just seen it for the first time. I am a big fan of Vespa and cooking, passions that I love to share with other scooter-lovers and foodies. I will be your cupid among the wonders of the old town, be they architectural, natural or culinary!
