Meetup in Genoa (Liguria, Italy) on Saturday 22nd June 2024 about the old lighthouse

:world_map: CITY/REGION: Genoa, Liguria, Italy
:round_pushpin: MEETUP PLACE: Main entry of Genoa Principe railway station
:calendar: DATE: June 22nd
:alarm_clock: TIME: 10:00 A.M - 5 P.M.
:page_facing_up: MEETUP PLAN:

The most iconic landmark of Genoa is the old lighthouse, called Lanterna, which since 1128 has welcomed ships entering the city port. The lighthouse was rebuilt in the current shape in 1543, and is one of the oldest in the world still in operation. With its 77 meters it is also the tallest of the Mediterranea Sea.

In 2024 it has been nominated lighthouse of the year by IALA (International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities), and so we decided to have a meetup dedicated to it :slight_smile:

We are going to meet at Principe railway station, and then take the metro to Dinegro, from which a 10 minutes walk will take us to the lighthouse. The full ticket is 8€ and includes the visit to the park, the small museum and the climb up to the panoramic terrace halfway up the lighthouse (172 steps)

After the visit we will move to the restaurant Zena Zuena in Via Cesarea (10 minutes from Brignole railway station) to eat, chat and write and sign the postcards together

For this meetup we are going to have 2 postcards!
The first depicted a beautiful shop of the Lanterna by photographer Giorgio Luperini
And the second, made with a LEGO model by @Spidermoro, shows our group of postcrossers around a table intent on eating and writing and exchanging postcards :slight_smile:
