Naval and commercial power since the XI century, Genoa has been nicknamed through the centuries “The Proud One”: trade, shipbuilding and banking were the main businesses that made Genoa famous and powerful throughout the centuries. Its glorious past is still evident walking through the city: the port, the many impressive buildings, the churches. Genoa is also the birthplace of probably the most famous explorer in history, Christopher Columbus, and of the music genius Niccolò Paganini.
