There are more impressive cathedrals in Italy, but nonetheless it is worth a detour to visit this cathedral if you are visiting Genoa. Look above the west door to see the toasting of St Lawrence, with a couple of slaves bending their backs to work...More

Big church in the heart of the narrow old town. You can also take a look inside for free or eat a snack outside on the stairs in front of the black and white building.

Imposing exterior in typical Genoese black and white marble. Outside, guarding the steps, are two beautifully carved lions. Are they sad? Compassionate? They certainly aren't scary.

An unusually rich exterior on this cathedral. The textures of the stonework around the door was absolutely intriguing - so very different that the plain work of other cathedrals. The interior was dark and luxuriant. It is a 'live' cathedral, very much in use today...More

Just our Cathedral which keeps inside a real bomb of the last second war . the cathedral's location is in the old city center, a pedestrian area at walking distance from Porto Antico (old harbour) and Acquario.

First of all, the aquarium. It's one of the biggest aquariums in Europe! Then you can see Porto Antico, with a Renzo Piano's sculpture and a huge ancient ship. There's also the Galata, the Sea Museum!
