We motorsailed to Genoa, a short distance to the North West. This was to be the furthest point North of the trip. The coast is continuous towns for many miles before reaching Genoa.

Genoa is a very large port, with many separate docks, spread over miles of coastline. We headed for the old port near the aquarium and were berthed on a pontoon furthest away from the town. Just across the marina there was a ship which now formed part of the Aquarium.
We walked into town to discover a food festival was in full swing. After a brief explore we settled in a rooftop restaurant for dinner before heading back.

The next day we spent five very interesting hours in the Naval Museum. Then a walk around the old town. We couldn’t resist buying 6l of wine from the barrel, packing the white wine with free ice from the marina on board.
