Locanda di Palazzo Cicala
Genoa
Locanda di Palazzo Cicala has all the magic of a "hotel de charme". It is located in the very heart of the historic city centre, opposite S. Lorenzo Cathedral, just a short walk from the Old Harbour, the Cotone Congressi congress centre and the art exhibitions in Palazzo Ducale. The hotel occupies the first floor of the historic and newly renovated Palazzo Cicala, which dates back to the 17th century and has undergone a complete restoration in the original style in 2002. On the outside, the main building front features magnificent stucco decorations and the remains of a medieval loggia on the façade overlooking Piazza Duomo.
The interiors, on the other hand, have been refurbished according to the precepts of contemporary design, with minimalist lines and sober colours creating an elegance that is offset by a few carefully chosen period pieces. Our large, airy rooms, with high arched ceilings embellished with stucco work and decorations, evoke the magic of the past while offering every modern convenience.
Locanda di Palazzo Cicala carefully matches the solemn majesty of traditional Genoese architecture with the modern vivacity of colour boasted by contemporary design.

More About Genoa

Genoa A city of art, the capital of Liguria in northern Italy and metropolis looking onto the sea, Genoa has grown up around the city's port - a natural cove that has always been the site of thriving traffic and commerce. Its ancient heart, Europe's biggest historic medieval center, is crisscrossed by a tight weave of alleys that capture the multicultural soul that has always characterized the city's history. Here, among workshops, eateries, and beautiful shops, glimmers a glimpse of the noble past of Genoa, "La Superba", consisting of sixteenth-century villas, Baroque votive aedicules, and prestigious churches giving onto small squares nestled between the buildings. Modernity is a few steps away, in places returned to the people and tourists by restoration and great urban renewal projects conducted over the last decade. Genoa offers a dizzying mix of the old and the new. The Expo with the Aquarium, Via San Lorenzo, the Palazzo Ducale, and the splendid Via Garibaldi full of museums. The city's charm can also be found in the numerous delegations from Nervi to Voltri - autonomous cities until the 20's - where visitors can explore villas surrounded by nineteenth-century parks, picturesque sea strolls, and museums large and small.
