I had no idea the Grimaldi family was originally Genoese! I only got it after trying Monaco for the closest capital. A small correction: some people still think Genoa is Italy's busiest port, but it was surpassed by Trieste six or seven years ago. Genoa is still Italy's biggest port if you count containerised cargo only, I think. Nice quiz!
