We liked the interior of the church, the mirror method and the baby Boys and Girls bibs inside. Free, worth taking a look, especially since the piazza is also nice.

Santa Maria della Vigne is extremely beautiful. It is one of the most highly decorated churches in Genoa. It's origins are in the 10th century when the monks tended grapevines in the courtyard. St. Mary of the Wine? Definitely my patron saint :))

Just across our B&B we could not miss this Basilisk. We found it to be one of the nicest, quietest religious places. Even if you are not or other religious.

The beautiful interior of the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Vigne is well worth a visit. The ceilings are covered in gorgeous paintings, so you'll spend much of your visit looking up at them (see attached photos).

Genova has no shortage of beautiful churches in the city so this one is often overlooked and you must know where to find it. For those arriving by cruise ship, it's just a 5 minute walk from the port tourist office and well worth a...More
