What to see in Genoa on a Monday?

What to see in Genoa on a Monday?

For me Genoa is like a sleeping beauty: sleeping due to its obvious disinterest in tourists and a beauty because it has much to offer. Let me introduce you to the things you can do in Genoa on a Monday, the day you are usually discouraged from visiting this Italian city on, as most of its attractions and museums are closed. But things happen, and if you can’t reschedule your visit, you might as well try and make the most of it. So you are in Genoa on a Monday. I hope you have arrived by train like me, and we can start our little sightseeing trip from the railway station. A quick reminder just in case: the main railway station of Genoa is called Genoa Piazza Principe (lit. ‘Square of the Prince’). Nobody is waiting for you, there’s no single tourist information centre around. You can buy a map at the bookshop nearby if you need one. To most of your questions about sightseeing you’ll get the evasive “I don’t know”. Pay no mind and don’t despair – I am here to help you out.
So you have arrived in Genoa by train, bought your map at the bookstore and... come on, leave that railway station already! There you are, with Christopher Columbus’s statue greeting you as you go out – as you probably know, the great Italian explorer and colonizer was a famous citizen of the Republic of Genoa.

On the one hand, accommodation costs can be a huge part of travelling expenses, something you would normally want to keep down. But on the other hand, choosing great accommodation is an excellent opportunity to add a very special feel to your travel experience! Some hotels can undeniably boast an unusual location / unique atmosphere / extraordinary architecture, design or artwork, along with special additional features, like beautiful gardens, pools and activities to keep you busy.Here is my list of seven very special hotels I have stayed at, for you to try: Shojoshin-in, Koyasan, Japan: A Buddhist Temple The only time I have stayed in a temple so far was in Koyasan, the birthplace of Japanese Buddhism. Temple lodgings, known as ‘shukubo’, are popular accommodation among overseas visitors in Koyasan. In the past, they were only for monks engaged in ascetic practices, then gradually started hosting pilgrims as well. Now there are tourist temple lodgings in 52 Koyasan shukubos.My travel mate and I stayed in Shojoshin-in.
