A real stunner even if you're not in to churches
Oct 2020
We stumbled across this church by chance as it wasn't mentioned in our guide book. So glad we did because it is a real beauty and free to visit. Amazing murals, sculptures and paintings. Very opulent.

Baroque Interior
Feb 2020 • Solo
This church’s impressive yet modest exterior hides a truly spectacular interior. Rows of Corinthian columns support a gold and fresco-clad ceiling. The individual chapels contain extraordinary paintings and sculptures. Informative panels give information relating to the artwork in each chapel. If you look up you can see where domes have been restored (destroyed during WWII bombings). I recommend a visit here to coincide with a visit to nearby Chiesa di San Siro (Church of St. Syrus).

This is a hidden gem
Feb 2019
We passed by this church a few times during our three day stay in Genoa. On the last day, we finally walked up 14 steps to the Basilica. The first thing I saw was the beautiful red and white marble columns that lead my eyes upwards. Wow! All the stunning frescoes covering the ceiling and dome. They were framed by intricate gold patterns like large picture frames. That was just breath taking. We were glad we didn't miss this hidden gem. 
Happy Travelling!

Very beautiful church! A must visit when in Genova. But for some reason it was closed on Saturday, around 2 pm. I guess there are times when it closes, just would be great to know those somehow.

Matches many others elsewhere in Italy
Nov 2019 • Couples
This is a most impressive Basilica in Genoa matching many I have seen elsewhere in the country. While a small basilica, it is worth searching for and spending time on. The many artists that decorated the Basilica did a great job and I enjoyed just walking around and appreciating their works. The most impressive is the cupola drome with an Assumption fresco. You will certainly find inner peace by merely sitting there in your thoughts.

Stunning cathedral
Oct 2019 • Couples
This appears to be a nothing special church as one passes by , but please take a few minutes to look inside. Absolutely Breathe taking . The art is incredible and the ceiling is a wonderful work of art!
Easy walk from train station and
Just down the street from the University of Genoa .

Large cathedral

This is the Cathedral of Genoa. The outside is nothing special, but the interior is richly decorated. A very impressive ceiling.

Superb Cathedral !

A must see . It’s a 10 minute walk from the train station. Truly an amazing site and the condition is impeccable throughout. If you have an hour between trains you should do this. Recommended.
