Every time I come back to my old hometown Genova, Boccadasse is a place to see. A charming old fishing village inside the city, where time seems to have frozen. This is something special, indeed.

Bus 42 from Via Dante whisks you out of the traffic tangle and bustle of Genoa city and delivers you to this glorious fishermen's village of pastel coloured houses snuggled together, fishing boats resting on the pebbled shore, cosy coves, naked bambini paddling, sunbathers of all shapes and sizes oblivious to the dangers of skin cancer, narrow pebbled labyrinths snaking...

When asking my colleagues where to run, they told me straight away to take Corso Italia to Boccadasse. The large pedestrian-friendly way to Boccadasse was great. Lots of people, bars, and beaches along the way. But the real gem was reaching this buzzing little village. Once you get to the church, head straight down the back of it to the... More

I am so glad I found the previous reviews on Boccadasse. I wanted a break from the center and took a bus ride (well, actually two!) and went last night. I just loved it. I sat outdoors at one of the restaurants and ordered an aperitivo to soak in the view. Although I had to move inside, as it started... More

When we went for walk around here it was raining, yet it was a very pleasant place to be. Its character has been maintained and some of the homes have the wow factor. It is also interesting to think of its history and if walls could talk I bet they could tell some tales.

A small "Portofino", "Positano" a fisherman's village embedded in the city of Genova. Looking at the pics is enough. A real gem.

If you enjoy a walk along the seafront then this is for you, we walked from the center of Genoa along the terracotta path just off the beach, its a long walk about an hour and a half but you can stop along the way and enjoy a coffee or perhaps a spritz. Once there just relax on the beach... More

It is nice place, known as fishers village. There are many restaurants nearby on sea side o enjoy panoramic view of sea. There is very old church from where you can see water merging to land, pebbles beach. Nice place to eat gelato, very good shop with marking since 1927. From there you can hike up the hill and from...
