We happened upon this monument on a stroll through the Arapaho waterfront park: it's Columbus! The whole waterfront is worth a stroll and it includes this familiar US/Italian hero.

It is located fairly near the main train station, on a small "park" surrounded by busy traffic. It is difficult to get a perspective of the statue to Columbus from the base. But we were still happy to see it as one of the key reasons we planned a stop in Genoa was its naval history and link to Columbus.

Dear old Cristoforo has a lot of monuments around the world. They are pretty much the same. The only thing I don't like about this one is the parking place around it. If you're here in busy hours you'll harldy take a nice pict.

This little monument is right near the pier where cruise ship tourists will be dropped off for cruise tours. The seafront area is beautiful with several small monuments like this, shopping and restaurants. Worth stopping by for a few minutes.

I discovered this during the weekly market near the end of the market . The sun was not in the right position to get good photos of it and the market in the background didn't make for a good photo either . It seemed rather ornate with a great nautical theme here . Columbo sure is remembered well in these... More
