Gets to some of the places that the city tour bus doesn't, much more extensive route. Pleased with the price, as we had tickets from a previous city that gives 10% off. The map is much more detailed for all the cities which is a bonus for return visits, and wandering off the explore. Pleased with this tour option.

The staff are helpful' but this is a wasteof money. Although you can hop on andoff for 2 days, the quality of the commentary is well below what it should be for such a historical city. It basically amounts to pointing out a fraction of the sites that there are in Genova. Can you read a map? Can you walk?... More

We took the bus at the Ferrari square. They clearly explained how it works and provided a map with all the stops ant a timetable. They also provided personal earphones. The bus arrives each 20 minutes and operate between 9am to 6pm. they have a lunch break between 1:30-2:00pm. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Really enjoyed the bus trip, it takes about an hour to do it fully but you can hop on and off. Its a really good way to see the city and see where you want to visit. The ticket lasts 48 hours so if you can use it up to three days if you time it right.

This tour doesn't last for more than 50 minutes and misses out on a lot this beautiful town has to offer. Commentaries are short, stops as well, sights in the center not really touched. You don't get to see the areas by the sea at all. I was really disappointed in what was offered for money.

Very good way to find the lay of the land in a new city. Reasonable price for 48hr ticket. Hop on & off where you like, when you like plus running commentary.

Better than what I expected. Can walk from the ship with no problem. Very beautiful city and fountains. Took the Sight Seeing tour bus to see everything. It's the best bang for your buck. Then went back into the city on foot to see certain things over again. I would return again.

It's a nice pleasant hour and a good way to acquaint yourself with Genova. Little tip, firstly it's cheaper to book via their Italian website and pay in € secondly this site also offers a discount if you have a valid code for Frecciabianca trains.
