If you are up for a fairly long walk I would recommend going to Boccadasse. The reception desk in our hotel (in central Genoa) recommended going by taxi but if we had of done, we would have missed seeing so much of Genoa. Being December, the promenade was very quiet but to be honest, I would not have wanted to... More

This is one of the most famous views of the town. Originally a small fisherman's town, Boccadasse is nowadays part of the city, but it's easy to feel the old atmosphere. Go for a walk, but don't stop in the main square! After having lunch or dinner in one of the nice restaurants overlooking the beach, you can buy an... More

This old small port of fisherman is a jewel in Genoa. You can reach it at the end of Corso Italia promenade. Genoa people is used to taste a good ice cream on this little beach.

Delightful little village not far from the Centre of Genoa. You can walk there if you like within an hour or so, delightful walk along the promenade, but there is a bus from Genoa. This is not a must but a pleasant addition if you have the time.

I've been to Boccadasse recently for the first time. Its indeed the nicest quite place in Genoa in my opinion. I've been there at dawn to witness the sunrise. I've taken a few photos of the place and for sure, I'm going back there again for more exploration. Must go if you ever visit Genova.

Every time I come back to my old hometown Genova, Boccadasse is a place to see. A charming old fishing village inside the city, where time seems to have frozen. This is something special, indeed.

Bus 42 from Via Dante whisks you out of the traffic tangle and bustle of Genoa city and delivers you to this glorious fishermen's village of pastel coloured houses snuggled together, fishing boats resting on the pebbled shore, cosy coves, naked bambini paddling, sunbathers of all shapes and sizes oblivious to the dangers of skin cancer, narrow pebbled labyrinths snaking...

When asking my colleagues where to run, they told me straight away to take Corso Italia to Boccadasse. The large pedestrian-friendly way to Boccadasse was great. Lots of people, bars, and beaches along the way. But the real gem was reaching this buzzing little village. Once you get to the church, head straight down the back of it to the... More
