The old port is cut from the old city by an elevated bypass. The post is just a port – not much old to see there: many yachts, few boats, few restaurants or bars. You can hardly see the sea from there.

It is perfect for walk and spending the touristic day visiting Aquario, restaurants, old galleon, to find a sea trip by boat and leave your yacht. Near the galleon there are always a lot of venders of fake stuff. They could be so many that it became difficult to pass through. Close to the evening the western part of the... More

The old boat is beautifull. My husband loves boats and the visit inside according to him was nice to see.

We spent a lazy afternoon here, eating our lunch, watching the world go by on the waterfront in a beehive of activity. Besides all the strollers, dog-walkers and various "hawkers" selling food and souvenirs are the many, many birds.. Genoa's native son, Christoforo Colombo has a replica of one of his boats alongside the port. We walked amongst the palm... More

Modern port with significant historical implication and replica of one of the three ships: Santa Maria, Pinta, or Nina, that sailed with Christoforo Colombo for the New World. Nicely done up for tourists but not too busy on a lazy Friday November afternoon. Quite pleasant atmosphere with strollers on the waterfront, including families and children. Isolated clusters of men were... More

Exploring the port of Genoa, meandering through the old town with its narrow streets, seeing the house where Christopher Columbus lived as a boy, and watching a parade wind through the old town made for a perfect day. We were here in October, with the colors changing, the multiple markets, fewer crowds and very pleasant weather.

A nice walk and good to see the boats and port life. Too many vagrants and always being hassled to buy things.

It has a beautiful view, you can see a few very big cruises and beautiful yachts, but, it's not like Monaco or Saint Tropez
