One of the best places in Genoa! Restaurants aquarium stratosphere plants museum... Nice boat visit with a nice Italian English speaking guide! You can find boats going to portofino from Genoa on Sundays at 10h am and 2 pm! For 20€ a round trip ticket! And a visit to the port of Genoa by the sea:))))

From the cruise terminal a 5 min walk is the old port. The start of the hop on off bus tours. The port has a market and the aquarium is there and some great photo shots

The whole water front is lovely to visit, a bright, brash, colourful melting pot. It's the perfect place to people watch too. Not to be missed.

Pleasant walk down crowded place. Lots of music. Mahatma Gandhi's statue as a monument of peace. Models of pirate ship. Real ships as well. People selling cheaper wares on the pavement.

If you visit this city with his big port than you have to visit of course also this part of the port. And you can do this on walking-distance (for example) of the famous shopping-street XXSeptembre!

There are certainly a lot of far better places to spend your time in Genova, but this one is very special, full of atmosphere, where you can feel the maritime roots of the city.
