Conference Venue: Genova, Italy

Genoa (Genova) is a port city and the capital of north-west Italy’s Liguria region. It’s known for its central role in maritime trade over many centuries. In the old town stands the Romanesque Cathedral of San Lorenzo, with its black-and-white-striped facade and frescoed interior. Narrow lanes open onto monumental squares like Piazza de Ferrari, site of an iconic bronze fountain and Teatro Carlo Felice opera house.

The city’s once-tatty port area now hosts museums and a number of eating and drinking options. Its old town, too, has had its own far more organic revitalisation, with a bright new crop of fashionable shops, restaurants and bars lighting the way.

The Convention Bureau Genova has provided a brochure of sights not to be missed while visiting Genova, as well as a map of the city and surrounding areas.
