Well worth popping in here for an hour's guided tour while exploring this charming town. Fronted by massive ficus trees, this fascinating building and collection is a memorial to the life and work of Clarence Bicknell, 19 century British botanist and archaeologist, one of the celebrated residents of the town in its heyday.

The best 2 Euros you will spend if you like books, botany, history, and culture. Very good curators (in Italian or French) show you around a small library with a very important collection on Ligurian natural history, botany, geology and much more. You can come back and read at the library during opening hours and there are a few books for sale. Run by the University of Genova and closes for lunch.

An extraordinary collection of books, botanical specimens and much else, beautifully presented in a purpose-built hall to preserve this slightly eccentric but serious and high-quality collection by a British expat of the late-19th century.
