Full description
Ticket: Escorted tour of Casa di Colombo Not far from Porta Soprana, just outside the ancient medieval walls, is the Casa di Colombo, where the discoverer of the Americas lived in his youth. According to archival documents, Domenico Colombo, father of the great navigator, moved here in 1455, when Christopher was four years old. The ground floor of the house was used as a workshop; an attic with wooden beams divides it from the upper floor, where the rooms for private use were located.

    The tour was very good, we learned a lot more detail about Christopher Columbus and his life. If you are in Genoa, you should take this tour.

    Sweet guide but it was over before we knew it as there is not much to guide. Therefore definitely not worth the money. Even guided groups that stopped by there didn’t go inside to the very limited quarters for boring viewing.

    It's exactly the service you get for the price, not more. Ok, as activity for half-hour.
