If you are going to Genova do not forget to spend half hour there. It seams a fisherman village, but is just minutes away from the center. Do not forgot to take a semifreddo by Amedeo icecream maker!

I suggest to go here if you' re not planning to go to Cinqueterre, it will give you an overview of what Cinqueterre is like. The beach is very small and it is a typical fishing town. The small town is popular as well because of the ice creams and it is a nice walk to the main little port... More

You can easily get to Boccadasse by bus (on foot is quite far ) but you barely find a narrow street where you can get to the seaside.. it doesn't have sand but stones and no annoying seabirds :)

This is a seaside town which is just a short bus ride away from Genoa. We went in November, so it was a bit closed down, but the colourful houses and seaside views were incredible. I'm sure this is a great summer vacation spot. I had a fabulous seafood lasagne and wine at the Cafe del Mar. If the weather... More

At the end of the promenade, suddenly we found a small cove, bordered with multicoloured buildings. A small walkway led us to the fishing village where boats were resting in the lap of the Ligurian sea. A cosy restaurant greeted us with fabulous Italian cuisine. We spent a memorable evening at Boccadasse.

It was freezing the day we went and we had to reverse our itinerary due to traffic related to a bus drivers strike in Genoa. Had the weather been nice and we had done the right order, lunch probably would have been lovely there. Otherwise, not much to see.

you're in Genoa but you're also in a small cosy fishermen's village - you can go there walking along Corso Italia - a beachside avenue that's very popular among people who live in Genoa, for walking/skating/going by bike in the evening

A really nice place at the end of Corso Italia. The small bay "walled" by the typical genovese houses is a great spot to see the sunset or go for an evening ice cream. A place not to miss in Genova!

We took the bus here from the city center, and walked back along the pier. Boccadasse is small and charming, a perfect place to have a picnic while watching the fishermen below.
