This is a very nice quarter of Genoa, where you can also enjoy the beach with the locals. It has plenty of good and not expensive restaurants, great Italian gelateria and spectacular view of the sea and city. The is parking available not far from the beach and you can get right into the city from there.

We caught the bus to Boccadasse for 1.50E. Walked down to the beach, sat and had a drink at a bar and enjoyed the view. The fishermen came in around 4pm. On our way out we came across a great little ice creamery, yummo. Walked along the boulevard and enjoyed the view especially watching some of the cruise ships come... More

Back covered by houses and a hill, Boccadasse is next to a small beach, in the middly of the city. just few km from the centre. It was a fishermen area, characterized by its rocky structure. Now it is a place to have a beer, an oice cream or try some restaurants. Recommend to take something to drink and have... More

Absolutely beautiful hidden paradise. Anything possibly you could think of you will find here. It is romantic, fun, clubby and in general all you would want for a day trip. You can relax at cozy small restaurants with amazing view, explore hidden bars and dance after dawn on the beach in one of those casual down to earth clubs and... More

I am from near Boccadasse so my review will be biased. It's a beautiful little fisherman "village" (now it's part of the city, but 100 years ago it was considered to be countryside). The place is quite picturesque and is best enjoyed during summer, when people have aperitifs and dinner outside (there are 2 restaurants and various bars) and enjoy... More

It's small but nice. We climbed the rocks, walked a bit on the stone beach, took some pictures, had some expensive ice-cream. After this we took a stroll on the boulevard.

Visited this place in early August. It has some charm with a church, small beach and restaurants. But to be numbered No. 1? This can not be true! There are so many nicer places in Genova, but not place. We spent about 30 minutes to walk around. That was it.

This little inlet is very picturesque and it is definitely worth a visit. We went in the middle of Summer and it was not crowded, which was a nice surprise. We got to it via local train - get off at Stura, head for the sea and it should take you about 15 mins. One thing though - two separate... More

We stopped by for a view of this town on a shore excursion and were impressed. It's nestled in just like the photographs portray it--gorgeous water color and vibrant, colorful buildings. There is a church nearby at an overlook, the Chiesa di Sant'Antonio and it was a lovely surprise to look in (there are model ships hanging from the ceiling)... More
