Our hotel room in the Hotel Astoria -- an historic hotel that's being refurbished.

The inside of Genoa's main cathedral. We weren't allowed to use flash so its a bit dark.

The cathedral, from another angle.

The outside of Christopher Colombus' house.

A hallway, inside the house. Every room was extremely small, sometimes only big enough to fit a few people.

The upstairs of Columbus' house.

The remains of the walled city, and just a few yards from Columbus' house.
