Tours: Genoa

Location maps for battles in Italy

Hotels in Genoa

The city of Genoa once rivalled the Venetians as the hub of explorers and traders.

Its geographical position also made it a tempting strategic target for warring armies.

In 1800 Genoa was forced to undergo a six-week siege as Austrian forces bottled up General Massena's troops. Supplies were short and both the French soldiers and local inhabitants suffered.

The city was surrendered on 4 June.
