Travel: Liguria & Schmap Guide Genoa

Has anyone experience with a Schmap guide?

You can use this guide on your iphone and download pictures and maps, egg. in Italy for 10 destinations (see example). And this is the latest 6th edition of the Schmap guide to Genoa (Genova), the capital of Liguria:

I had no idea of this tool and how it works (still no idea) until I was asked by the schmap guide makers if they could use one of my photos for their new Genoa guide (see above). I agreed to use my photo of Portofino that I had uploaded to flickr last year after our trip to Liguria in Italy.

In two days I will be in Liguria again to visit my FIL who is based in La Spezia for a couple of months as consultant for a project.

That is also one of the reasons our palazzo project is on hold until summer/autumn this year as our important main supervisor is busy in Liguria.

I hope to be able to post and upload more beautiful impressions of Liguria next week.

For now only this picture of bello Portofino taken in 10/2008, also published in the latest Schmap Genoa Guide (see all activities & trips):

For further impressions visit my little flickr photo set of Liguria.

If you like to read a blog based in La Spezia go to Bella Vita in Liguria.


  1. I loved Liguria when I last visited. Just wish I had an iPhone :(

  2. I traveled to Liguria many times over the years and it is one of my favorite places in Italy. There is wonderful food in LaSpezia, too. Enjoy your stay you lucky one. Looking forward to photos. Eat some lasagna noodles with triglie (fish sauce) for me!
