Along with a modern city, Genova has a historic core that is a maze of alleyways. It is nearly impossible to navigate from point A to point B as the available paper maps aren't very good. Mapping apps help a lot when you can get a signal but they tend to get lost themselves with the narrow passages between old multistory buildings. BUT... this is where all the fun is... getting lost and finding your way back. We stayed in the core of historic Genova, in a walk-up 7 story building, on the 7th floor. We also found that we were in the heart of the red light district. Interesting characters everywhere.
