A stroll along the wide Corso Italia promenade with views of the sea brings you to the quaint village of Boccadasse with houses cascading down to a small beach and the sea. A few restaurants line the seafront, which are a little overpriced. However the charming surroundings make this a must see attraction in Genova.

This is one of the best area in the whole city. You can easily reach Boccadasse by bus or by Uber (if you subscribe with the app Uber with code "uberprovami" you have a free ride), by taxi or by walk from the near Corso Italia. You can visit Boccadasse in any season, It's beautiful in the summer as well... More

Walked from Genoa on the promenade with wonderful views.Boccadasse is well worth the visit ,carried on walking to Nevi Train Station and taking a train back to Genoa. Buy tickets at the newsagent at the station 1:60 euros.

Whilst a nice spot the beach is tiny and the surrounding area small. It was very busy when we visited hate to think what it would be like in the summer.

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 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

Lovely fishing village, an ancient harbour with brightly painted, cramped houses running down the sea. Charming and unpretentious, lively see front cafes, a pleasant stroll along the promenade from the old port of Genoa.

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
