On the hill of Castello, in front of the Ducal Palace, near to the old harbour from which to embark towards Portofino and the Cinque Terre, close to everything, yet quiet and open to the sky ... ideal for living Genoa, besides visiting it.

The space

the position, the silence, the paintings, the style

Guest access

all the main historical and turistical attractions of the city are at walkable distance. Portofino and 5 Terre may be reached from the old harbour, which is 5 minutes walking distant

Interaction with guests

to the degree they desire. I like to offer special tips if they are interested to history and culture

Other things to note

the second bed is a sofa bed (which can accomodate two persons). The house has the elevator, but in order to get there from piazza Sarzano there is a quite steep pedestrian road to walk (50 metres or so)

This apartment is great! It has an impressive art, music and book collection and Lorenzo was a really helpful host! He suggested some great things to do which helped us enjoy our time in Genoa. The views are pretty spectacular too! Thanks Lorenzo!

Lorenzo is such a good host, he welcomed us really nice and gave us a lot of recommendations for our stay, where we should go and where we can have dinner. The appartement is more beautiful than on the pictures, it was just fantastic! It's perfectly located so you can reach everthing by foot. We liked it a lot here, and Lorenzo was always available, if we had some questions! So we can only recommend a stay in this appartement!

Lorenzo's place is great! It has two balconies, one with a scenic view over Genoa, another smaller one where you can get a glimpse on the sea. The flat has everything you need for a comfortable stay in Genoa, and Lorenzo is a great host; he gave us many tips for great food, aperitivo, swimming and sightseeing in Genoa and he was always available for questions. I fully recommend staying at this great place!

We were lucky to be one of the last to stay at Lorenzo's fabulous apartment - what a great place! Thank you Lorenzo for making us so welcome and giving us so much advice. We had a wonderful holiday and would love to return to Genova one day. The location in the old town was perfect and made it easy to explore the city. It was great to have somewhere to return to in the evening and sit on the balcony watching the light change as the sun went down.

A fantastic apartment in a great location. Thanks Lorenzo and Daniela for all your help in making our stay a hassle free one. The apartment is exactly as described. It is spacious, central and overlooks the city from the balcony - a perfect spot to sit and relax at the end of the day. Many thanks - we hope to return at some point!

We stayed here for 7 days and enjoyed every minute. The apartment is very convenient, spacious and full of light. The view from the apartment is like the picture of the advertisement: wonderfull. It is situated in the old district of the port. If you love alleys (vico's) and small piazza's - we did - it's the place to be. Public transport is in the neighbourhood and well organised. We do recommend a trip by train to Nervi or the peninsula of Portofino to see the most beautiful blue of sea and sky in the world. Lorenzo is the best host you can wish. He guided us the first time from the metrostation to the apartment and left us something to eat and to drink. We appreciated it very much. If you need some advise where to go or to eat, he will let you know by smartphone-messages.

Lorenzo was the perfect host for our stay in Genova. He is very helpful and has always great advices for everything you need. The fabulous flat with the amzazing view over the rooftops of Genova was very clean and quiet. We would love to come back someday.
