You can visit, the acquarium, the cathedral, the house of Cristoforo Colombo (only outside), Via Garibaldi, there are many good places to see.

in July the rates of the hotels situated in the city center is not high as it is considered low season.

You can check the best prices from here : www.theredskin.uni.cc

You can also have informations about the city from here : http://www.apt.genova.it/

I really strongly recommend the Hotel Balbi, just down the hill from the central station. Inexpensive, comfortable and clean. My wife and I were there two years ago and loved it. The staff are REALLY helpful, breakfast is great, and it's a short walk to the shopping area and the harbour.

You'll love Genoa -- it's completely unpretentious (unlike Milan!)

Have a great time in Genoa!

Don't miss the cavernous, Middle-Eastern-Bazaar-like shopping area at the foot of the hill from the train station. Narrow streets, very little sunlight getting through the balconies (and the construction), but with fashionable Italian women in high heels doing their shopping. Genoa was really, really different for me. Not polished at all, but not creepy and seedy like Marseille either. I really enjoyed it and hope you will too.
