    The port of Genoa probably had activity back to as early as the 5th century B.C. The history of Porto Antico (or Mandraccio), is intertwined with the history of Genoa's former Mediterranean glory. Christopher Columbus hailed from here, before agreeing to navigate the ocean blue for the glory of Spain. Over time, this area fell into disrepair, and it wasn't until a restructuring in 1992, that gave this area back to the community.

    Gayle and I didn't spend a lot of time here, but we certainly enjoyed the combination of history, urban renewal, ship sightings, and a dash of "Fisherman's Wharf" kitsch. We skipped the aquarium and were content to just wander around. Quite frankly, I was more impressed with the nearby old City, including the labyrinth of narrow streets, interesting churches, and a more intimate sense of history.

    Il Porto antico è una parte del porto di Genova attualmente adibita a quartiere abitativo, centro turistico, culturale e di servizi divisa in due aree date in concessione dal demanio alle società Porto Antico S.p.A. e Marina Porto Antico S.p.A. ed un'area gestita direttamente dal Comune di Genova.
    Il suo riadattamento è stato portato a termine nei primi anni novanta sulla superficie di quello che un tempo era il cuore dell'attività portuale - regno dei camalli che facevano parte della Compagnia dei Caravana - e che era rimasto da molti decenni di fatto inutilizzato.
