Genoa, Italy

After living out of our backpacks for a month in France we took the train from Nice to Genoa. It was a busy, beautiful port city in Italy's Liguria region. With the streets narrow and the cathedral's grand, Genoa was like being in an old Italian film. I loved the lines and structure of the Romanesque Cathedral of San Lorenzo with its striped walls, but most of all I couldn't get enough of the fountains. They were almost more grand than the architecture. I wish I could live the whole trip again in slow motion.
