Readers outside Italy may know Boccadasse from the Commissario Montalbano crime books, dramatised by RAI and widely televised. Boccadasse is the fictional home of Montalbano's architect girlfriend Livia. Besides that, though, it offers a very scenic hint of the more commercialised Cinque Terre villages further south, while still being a genuine working fishing village and an Italian holiday and day...

I would recommend this place to anyone. I found it on the internet by chance before going to Genoa and we decided to visit it. It looks exactly like in the photos. It is so relaxing to stay on a bench and look over the amazing view that is offered. From Genoa is not so difficult to travel by public... More

It was the best experience we had from Genoa the evening we spent in this old port. Although not located close to the centre of the town, it is absolutely worth the ride! There is very good selection of restaurants. Also you can find the most delicious ice cream in Genoa for sure. If you are lucky enough and the... More

If you are up for a fairly long walk I would recommend going to Boccadasse. The reception desk in our hotel (in central Genoa) recommended going by taxi but if we had of done, we would have missed seeing so much of Genoa. Being December, the promenade was very quiet but to be honest, I would not have wanted to... More

This is one of the most famous views of the town. Originally a small fisherman's town, Boccadasse is nowadays part of the city, but it's easy to feel the old atmosphere. Go for a walk, but don't stop in the main square! After having lunch or dinner in one of the nice restaurants overlooking the beach, you can buy an... More

This old small port of fisherman is a jewel in Genoa. You can reach it at the end of Corso Italia promenade. Genoa people is used to taste a good ice cream on this little beach.

Delightful little village not far from the Centre of Genoa. You can walk there if you like within an hour or so, delightful walk along the promenade, but there is a bus from Genoa. This is not a must but a pleasant addition if you have the time.

I've been to Boccadasse recently for the first time. Its indeed the nicest quite place in Genoa in my opinion. I've been there at dawn to witness the sunrise. I've taken a few photos of the place and for sure, I'm going back there again for more exploration. Must go if you ever visit Genova.
