Beautiful gorgeous Genoa Bay
Genoa, in Italian "Genova," is the capital of the region of Liguria and the sixth largest city in Italy, located on the northwestern coastline of the country on Genoa Bay. It is home to the largest seaport in Italy, and was awarded European Capital of Culture in 2004.

The land was originally a Greek colony, begun around the 6th Century BC, though many historians have produced evidence that the bay was used and inhabited since much earlier, by the Estruscans. Just before the 12th Century, the city became the Republic of Genoa, a powerful Italian city-state.

Today, it is known for its beauty, culture, waterfront and Meditteranean beaches, architecture, colorful buildings, warm climate, cuisine, arts, and business district.
