This fascinating Basilica is very nondescript from the outside and can be easily missed. But if you take the time to look for it, and spend just a few minutes inside, you will be well rewarded. Yes, churches and basilica's seem to abound in Italy but this is a stunning place that is certainly worth a visit. Drop a coin... More

The church is at a very busy junction - lovely to step inside and take in the calmness. As mentioned before there is an elderly gentleman that hovers near the entrance and leaps up to insist you enter and most people would be hard pushed to ignore the donations box! Spare a few euros to ensure the churches can continue... More

A very old church with a facade that remembers me the greek temples,with its triangular fronton supported by columns. One of the biggest and most beautiful in Genoa. Situated close to Darsena metro station.

Very impressive interior to this church - probably the best in Genoa? Well worth dropping in if you're in the area.

The outside of the Basilica was great but the interior was amazing and a must to see. It is situated in a very handy position within Genoa and the memories will last you forever.

This baslica is on the Piazza delle Nunziata. It feels like a quiet retreat, an escape from the busy traffic outside. Too bad we were forced to donate before taking any pictures at all. The guardian of the house certainly was devoted to the place. We could take any postcard we could after.

This church or basillica is much smaller then the Cathedral of Genoa but also much nicer, it is Baroque but not high Baroque which is a bit over the top for me, The ceilings are as in so many churches completely covered with paintings, but you do not have to look up, the placed a tilted mirror on the floor,...

The gold in this basilica gleams. The art on the ceiling amazed me. Sure glad I stopped in on my way back to the B&B!
