I am going on a cruise and Genoa is a stop. What are some tourist attractions nearest to the port/dock? Thanks.

First of all, the aquarium. It's one of the biggest aquariums in Europe! Then you can see Porto Antico, with a Renzo Piano's sculpture and a huge ancient ship. There's also the Galata, the Sea Museum!
