Genoa is known as a seafaring city. But there’s more to it than just that. La Superba, as the Italians call it, is also known for its distinctive geography. The city is almost 20 kilometres long, pinned between the sea and the hills above it, and it is this geography that has carved out its extraordinary history. Let’s take a trip back in time.

The city was squashed into a small space beside the sea, with the ring of hills behind it, forming a natural protective barrier against large armies.
