Travel writers or travel bloggers are always looking for new experiences, for exploring new and special places untouched by other tourists, and I think that this is all about me: my love and passion for different cultures and for visiting a place as much possible as a local has always been the sense of my travels around the World. Meeting local people, listening to their life stories and living the place I’m visiting thanks to them is something unique, something which enriches my life experience when I’m back at home.
Sometimes I get even lost during my trips, but isn’t that what getting lost is all about?
I think that getting lost is even better than simply following the already known touristic routes and some cities are positively made for going missing. Genova medieval center is one of them.
Its historical center for me is an invitation to wander off and drop into shops you’d never have found if you haden’t taken that wrong turn or into small squares with majestic churches and palaces of ancient memories.
In Genoa historical center getting lost ensures you discover there’s more to this city than the famous Old Port.
It’s amazing how often you find yourself at a point where the alleys are so narrow that you can’t even see the sky and you ask yourself where this labyrinth of alleyways is going to take you!
I think that directions are good, but if you never get lost you miss out on a world of undiscovered finds. That’s why sometimes I love to get lost in Genova ancient center.
Getting off the beaten track reaps rewards, believe me!
