Greetings from Genoa

The Italian hero Giuseppe Garibaldi looks far away for new adventures

Genova, correct Italian spelling, is a charming, elegant city in the Liguria region, close to Portofino and the Cinque Terre. Due to its glorious past it is called La Superba or "the Superb one".
Genova is in fact a city rich in art and a major seaport. The medieval old section, the biggest in Europe, is a labyrinth of alleys rich of ancient palaces, Romanesque churches, little piazzas and it was inscribed on the World Heritage List (UNESCO).

Love the door closeup. I often shoot photos of doors on my travels....the hardware, texture, shapes appeal to me.

Love, love Genova! My most exuberant uncle who sadly passed away few years ago was from there. He was a huge delight to me when I was a kid, the Genovese sprit.

I have not bee in years. Thank you for inspiring me to visit again soon Albarosa. Happy New Year!
