Wandering Wednesday – Genoa (Genova), Italy

Italy had some horrible rains and flooding this week. One of the hardest hit cities was Genoa. This made me think of our visit last fall to this interesting old old city with it’s winding little streets and new things around every corner.

At the top of a long alley full of friendly young ladies working in the oldest profession, we found that it ended at the city municipal offices. How convenient for them.

Even if you don’t speak Italian, you can tell what the sign says.

The church used to pilfer temples and other building for the marble. Look closely and you can see the carvings on the pieces from their original homes.

There is also a lovely waterfront. I hope you enjoyed Genoa and keep them in your thoughts this week.
