Genoa is a little bit farther from Ventimiglia than some of our other trips. But I was able to convince Fabien to take me to the Aquarium there with the promise of doing some shopping at Ikea afterwards (jks, that was for me too).
Our first stop in Genoa was at the aquarium. It is built right on the harbour and is one of the biggest aquariums in Europe.
After spending a couple hours at the aquarium we walked around the port and took a quick peak into the city.
As promised on our way home we stopped at IKEA. Having family in Sweden, I consider myself somewhat of an IKEA expert, I can spot IKEA furniture from a mile away. But my favourite part is the cinnamons buns, I was truly disappointed when they were sold out. We did however pick up my favourite IKEA accessory, the scrub brush.
I didn’t love Genoa, the aquarium was fun and worth a visit, but I can’t see myself going back. (Unless I find myself furnishing a student home in Italy)
