Stop by the Embriaci Tower, the tallest in Genoa, and visit the colorful square of Campopisano where you'll listen to other songs about legends and important historical facts.

The tour was a lot of fun and we learnt very interesting tidbits of the history of the city in the form of beautiful songs. Alessandro was very nice and accommodated our very late booking. He answered all of our questions about the city and we had a fun morning walking around Genoa and also got recommendations on where to eat and what to visit.
