This place is just stunning to look at - one of the finest in northern Italy outside of the major city sites. It's a shame you can't see it from further away but head towards it, stand in the front square and admire the architecture, colour, and design - you won't be disappointed.

This is the first site ot attraction we have seen when came to Genoa. It made us happy to be here and we were ready to explore more o the city. But this is more or less all you have to see there.

On one of the main squares, this is a really impressive church. It is the size and the symmetry that are special.

We popped in here as we were wandering the area. It was quiet, cool, and lovely. If I return to Genova, I will visit here again and stay longer.

This is a wonderful and impressive sight. A summer visit means long lines that can be helped a bit by pre-buying tickets. My daughter and I like to use audio guides when we can and the Duomo guide was disappointing. There was very little background provided, mostly just names of creators and makers and dates. Somewhat useful to a student... More

Whenever some selfmade church-official is telling one female she should wear clothes covering legs and shoulders and lets another walk in in super-shorts, Jezus will roll-over in his grave. Nice building but completely run over. Stupid the entry and exit were allowed through te same small door.

Typical of Genovese style with the grey and white layers of marble and stone, intricate carvings and examples of various architectural styles as the church was built over the years. Beautiful inside, definitely worth a stop.

Stunning and well worth the visit... Loved the "unexploded" British WWII bomb in the main area... Nice touch : )
