Il Sole Resort: in the heart of Genoa's old town in one of the most beautiful places, Piazza Lavagna. Only 5 minutes walk from the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, the birthplace of Christopher Columbus (Casa Colombo) and the UNESCO World Heritage Site Via Garibaldi. The Apartment Sole 1 is a 35m2 apartment on the first floor of a typical Ligurian town palace with a brightly painted facade. The 2011 completely renovated apartment has a spacious and tastefully furnished kitchen and a cosy living room with windows overlooking the Piazza Lavagna. The apartment can accommodate 2 persons. For young guests there is a cot available. A heat pump, which acts as an air conditioner in summer, provides in every season the rlight temperature. Safe and WiFi are also available. Connected to the apartment is the apartment Sole 2 , for 4 people, so that family members or friends can share the location. A 10 minutes walk from Il Sole Resort is an underground car park, where you can park your car safely. And then go on foot, perhaps on a shopping trip, to explore Genoa: the Doge's Palace, the Museum Mile in Via Garibaldi, the old harbor with its world famous aquarium and the city for children, the Città dei Bambini. A must is a stroll along the beach promenades Corso Italia and Anita Garibaldi, Genoa-Nervi. And in the late afternoon enjoy your happy hour at one of the many bars in the old town, known for its Movida after the example of Madrid, where an aperitif will be served with so many delights for free that dinner is almost superfluous. And who is still hungry, can equally be pampered next to Il Sole Resort at the Osteria Il Fabbro. A city trip to Genoa is ideal throughout the year due to the mild climate of Riviera. Especially at chrismas (shops open throughout sundays) as well as the traditional clearances in July and January / February. Genoa is also an ideal location for exploring the Cinque Terre, Portofino.
