Peacefu and picturesque place! We enjoyed it even if the weather wasn't very nice (it was raining when we arrived there). Deserves a longer stay next time.

My parents came to visit and I wanted them to see something outside of Genoa. Boccadasse is a short 15 - 20 min drive from Genoa and we really enjoyed it. It was a hot sunny day. It is a picturesque little seaside town. There are a few restaurants around that serve god quality food and also some great ice... More

It is a very pretty area located not very far from the city centre of Genoa. You should take a bus 31 from the Brignole Station and it takes around 15-20 mins to reach there. You will find there long promenade located on the sea shore with a beauiful view of the sea and good looking houses on the opposite... More

So close to an important city as Genoa and the Boccadasse is like going back in time, the houses around the beach, the restaurants, the sound of the sea, the smell of the local fisheries ... Everything gives you a feeling of enjoyment.

Beautiful ocean side area of Genoa with wonderful restaurants and a nice, small beach. Very pretty, without the crowds.

Hardly signposted, almost difficult to find, but we'd read about it in previous reviews, so it was on our list. That said Buses 31 and 42 effectively pass it, although we walked to it from the Pisa/Orsini stop of Bus 15. Like several other reviewers we walked back into Genoa. Boccadasse is only a small sub-district, surrounded by modern Genoa,... More

Very nice promenade by the seaside leads to this picturesqure tiny fishing village. We walked from old-town Genoa. It took a while to find our way to the seaside promenade but that allowed us to see a lot of the old town, old brick walls (mura) and some nice parks etc. The promenade itself is ca 3 km long and...

Quaint fishing village a few miles from Genoa. We took the bus there and the locals were only too happy to help a couple of tourists get there. The fishing boats, the outside cafe, the sea, and the lay out of the village were quite well coming. We walked back to Genoa from Boccadasse on the beautiful promenade until we... More

I have been here because I live nearby, but I wouldn't make this a must see place to visit. It has it's charm, as all of Italy does, but it's nothing really.

Took a taxi (20 euro) from genoa train station, boccadasse. Is pretty and charming. It's a place where if you were on a hop on hop off bus, you would admire the view but not get off? Very pretty but nothing else to see,,,,,,,,, but worth seeing!
