If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Be prepared for lots of form filling and walking up and down hills. Genova is very, very hilly. Relatively un-touristed other then by Italians, and, in my opinion, an undiscovered treasure as far as the English are concerned.
