Orienteering in the Old Town


Genoa looks more like a labyrinth than a city sometimes. How could the Genoese avoid getting lost walking around? Well, thanks to the votive shrines! They mapped out Palace’s corners and churches in the Old Town, helping the wanders to orient themselves.  Join us on an exciting journey among elegant marble portals and slate details. Learn how to orient in the maze of the Genoa’s alleys as a true Genoese! Discover the most hidden corners and the most curious stories and give yourself a unique experience watching Genoa from a different point of view!

Discover the Symbols on Votive Shrines and Portals!

To describe Genoa you can use many adjectives, but symmetrical isn’t one of them. Despite that there is a spot called “i quattro canti” where the cornice of the buildings takes the shape of a cross! So, if you see a walker looking up towards the sky, now you know that he/she probably does it because is checking the location!
