The Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno (Cimitero monumentale di Staglieno) is one attraction in Genoa you shouldn’t miss even if visiting a historic cemetery might not be everyone’s idea of a pleasant tourist activity. It is one of the biggest cemeteries in Europe and is brimming with elaborate statues, decorations, and monuments. But what makes it stand out from other graveyards is its variety of architectural styles which can tell the story of every age in Genoa’s history. Take a walk through its labyrinthine paths, among mausoleums inspired by oriental mosques or Swiss chalets; there are more than 40 structures here that are classified as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

The outside of D’Albertis Castle, the first villa castle in Genoa, which was constructed in the Gothic revival style, alone makes it worthwhile to see. Even more fascinating artefacts may be found within, such as the Museum of World Cultures, which features treasures from the private collection of the building’s principal owner, captain Enrico Alberto d’Albertis. A fusion of Medieval and Oriental artworks can also be seen here.
