lovely setting

We took the bus (I think it was Nr 41 or 42) from Brignole train station - it's about 15 minutes to Boccadasse, which is next to the Corso Italia with all the "bagni". I can... read more

I can imagine that it's quite popular in summer, but in mid- to late March Boccadasse is a peaceful place to come for dinner or drinks... More

Very pretty, so close to Genoa, but a world away. Not to be missed! A great place to sit by the water or stroll along the walkway with a gelato!

I'm from Genova, and I always used to come here to have an ice cream since I was a kid. This place can give you an idea about how Liguria used to be in ancient times: a chain of small fishermen hamlets wherever there was a shelter for the boats. I can say that in the last 50 years It... More

A small village in the heart of a big city. It's a jewel! Wonderful restaurants, excellent ice cream parlours, a view to die for!

I have to say we were a bit disappointed after the build up some of the guidebooks and postcards gave this place and comparisons to Cinque Terra. We are in the Cinque Terra as I write this and there is hands-down no comparison. That was pretty obvious as soon as we arrived in Boccadasse though. A small little place, quite... More

You must visit this place to see the most beautiful sunset of Genoa italy. Very nice church nearby. Food joints nearby are very cosy and has nice view.
