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.

The monument is located near the bus station, outside of the Piazza Principe Railway station. If go up from the monument, you can reach Castello D'Albertis; if go down, there is the sea; if follow the road straight down, you will see some other places like Cattedrale di San Lorenzo.

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.
