Right by the Piazza Principe Railway Station, an impressive tribute to the City’s most famous son. Seen by every commuter and on a very busy traffic intersection. Good photo opportunity, but not worth a special visit.

Located outside the railroad station it is an impressive statue but does not need more than a minute of your time. Watch out for the aggressive drivers and motorcyclists circling the statue.

We came out of the station, saw the monument, took a photo, moved on. Nice to look at, not worth going out of the way for though.

It is located just outside of the Genoa Central Railway station. It is a monument on his name in the birthplace of the famous (some say notorious) navigator Christopher Columbus.
