As has become customary in camps, the team went out out for a stroll in the city. And Genoa is certainly worth a look...
Out for about an hour, the sights included the oldest bank in Italy (Banco or Ufficio di San Giorgio, founded in 1407), an old church (Cattedrale di San Lorenzo, seen above), and a pirate ship built in the 17th century (Il Galeone Neptune).
Loads of school kids in the streets came running (literally) in search of autographs, with Clint Dempsey a particular favorite. Overall, a nice relaxing afternoon before the evening training session.
