Looks like a picture - very good place for some photos while visiting Genoa. Not that good when you come closer to the small houses and coast - restaurants are not very recommended because of overrated prices. I visited this place in January so I believe that in summer eveything looks a lot better. All in all - must visit... More

Visiting the Boccadasse is a must-do while in Genova. It's about an hour walk (I recommend walking on the path that follows the coast) from the center of Genova, or you can take a bus. Though it was cloudy and rainy the day we visited, the views were still beautiful. There are lots of little restaurants surrounding the beach as... More

Extraordinary beautiful old fishing village that is full of character and home to delightful restaurants. Just watch the waves splash on the rocks or the sunset.

We walked from the old town and it is a walk worth doing - about 5km, but lots to see along the way from shops to parks to palaces and then to the beach on a sparkling winter's day. Once there, there are photos to take and lunch to be had; there are a number of options from foccacias to... More

Located at the outskirts of Genova, but very easy to reach by bus (#31) leaving from Brignole. It is a small fishing village, bay, with few restaurants, resembling the cinque terre villages at a smaller scale. Nice location to end your walk on Corso Italia promenade.

A beautiful little bay with brightly coloured buildings on the cliff face. This bay was close to our hotel and worth the short walk to see it.

Several years ago it was quiet bay, nice and very romantic. Now, unfortunately, it is the well-known point of interest for all tourists who walk along Corsa Italia. Restaurants and Cafes appeared and become greedy. I think there is being done millions of identical “classical” Italian postcard-like photos.

we visited on a rainy winter day - and even then, it was very beautiful. Not to be missed when in Genoa.
