MCS Divina 7 Nights Cruise – Genoa to Marseille
MCS Divina 7 Nights Cruise – Genoa to Marseille – Genoa is a marvellously hilly city in Northern Italy that is oftentimes overlooked for its more glamorous neighbours, Rome and Venice. However, Genoa, which was once the most important port along the Mediterranean, is one of Europe’s most intact old cities.
Genoa, along with nearby Portofino, are perfect cruise destinations to see the some of Italy’s best art and architecture. It is also a place that has influenced America in a roundabout way, for Genoa was the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, the explorer who brought Europe’s attention to the New World. It is also where we get the word for “jeans.” Genoa produced cotton corduroy that was popular and weavers in Nimes.
This is where we derive the word “denim” from de Nimes, but blue jeans still honour the original fabric produced in Genoa. Explore this marvellous Italian gem on your own cruise to Genoa, Italy, or nearby Portofino.
