As the title suggests this place is super cute, with a little pebble beach and a very good gelateria. It's a lovely place to take photos and there is also a short walk to a look out down the coast. Not a lot to do there but is definitely worth a visit. The trip down the Corsa Italia to get... More

Had the best in the Boccadasse meeting locals and enjoying the beautiful scenery. I also got to dance the night away more than once and it was fabulous!

From Genoa historical center it is a 20 minute bus ride to Boccadesse. It is a beautiful beach town, although the beach is tiny there is a great view of the hill homes, water and mountains. Aside of Boccadesse is a great Lido along the ocean it is approx. 1 mile long lined with palm trees and beautiful homes. It... More

If you are visiting Genoa take the time out to visit Boccadasse. It is a short distance south and its tranquility is a welcome change from the hubbub of Genoa. There are a few restaurants there right on the sea and a nice little bay. With the views out to sea and along the coast Boccadasse lends itself to either... More

This is really a worth seeing place in my hometown...characteristic, romantic...few guides will suggest it cuz it is not right in the city centre, but you can get there quite easily (5-10 minutes by car) and admiring a fantastic place. Take the "creuza" ( narrow steep street) and climb to the Santa Chiara peak where you might see a fantastic... More

As part of our holiday to Genoa, we caught a bus to Boccadesse for a few hours of sun and sea. This is definitely worth doing. If its a hot day, take your swimming stuff and either try the sea or the local lido which is walking distance from Italia 5 or Italia 6 bus stops on line 31.
