- 'A place which you never finish discovering. It would appear there is always something to discover. Rich with the most bizarre of contrasts: every which way you turn, you glimpse picturesque, ugly, abject, magnificent, delicious and pleasant things'. Charles Dickens in 1843 described Genoa as a city which remains to be discovered, rich in history, quirks and legend.
