Lovely fishing village

A lovely fishing village with excellent seafood restaurants. The view is stunning especially at sunset. Totally different from the rest of Genoa which is a port city!!

We had a quick look at the bus system in Genoa centro, but ended up jumping in a taxi, which took about 20 minutes. Very peaceful and picturesque place to relax. At lunchtime there was only one "sit down" restaurant open, but we opted for one of the handful of takeaways (sandwich, salad, 2 beers, 2 wines, 4 expresso: 25... More

This is a beautiful walk along the Corso Italia on the coastline but, as in the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, I regret that the large road is just nearby making the walk quite noisy sometimes. Some very nice and old buildings (some with a Byzantine architecture) can be spotted on the walk.

The atmosphere of a fishermen village a few steps from the city, an excellent place to relax and sit by the seaside... excellent ice cream too!

Great spot. It's not the Cinque Terra but well worth the walk. In fact the walk from the city along Corso Italia is simply fantastic on a nice day. It's a must do in Genoa. Great city with many faces. Would come back in a blink.

Pretty place, having a coffee while viewing the sea under the sun is a great pleasure. But it is hard to find a taxi for return

It's a small fisherman village, very nice, but always overcrowded.....with less people would be better, anyhow, it's really a small area, but coming from the city it represents the first possibility to see the sea from a nice angle.

Not far from Genoa via bus, great atmosphere, view, restaurants and ice cream. Visit the church if open.
