This is stunning inside and well worth a visit, the workmanship on the walls are truly amazing. This is free to visit and they just have a small collection box at entrance if you want to put a euro in to preserve these fabulous buildings

The Franciscans started to build the Basilica della Santissima Annunziata del Vastato in 1520. However, poor Franciscans ran out of money at the level of walls and roofs. Construction was suspended for several decades. Finally, they found a rich family of Genoa Lomellini who pledged...More

We passed by this church a coupe of times when it was shut/"in prayer", but we would not be off, and it was worth the wait. Very calm and peaceful inside, with interesting art/décor.

This church, short distance walk from the royal palace museum, and at a prominent junction, is absolutely an undiscovered gem. Easily the best church in Genoa, and definitely one of the very best in Italy (and of course Europe!) Very little mentioning and very under-marketed...More
