We traveled here a year ago and it was one of the loveliest places I have ever been. The cove is surrounded by beautiful old buildings. The sea is warm and clean and clear. Old ladies from the surrounding town come and bob about like seals during weekdays. Our little daughter happily played in the gentle surf. There are a... More

Arrived in Genoa midweek and was only informed of Via XX Settembre in terms of destination and places to visit but discovered Boccadasse whilst browsing along the port and i can only say this area must be visited!

We walked from Genoa to this lovely part of Genoa. It was a lovely walk and the views were breathtaking. The colours were amazing. We found it an easy walk with plenty to see and do. We went into a lovely church with the most stunning stained glass windows! There are plenty of places to eat and drink on the... More

Walked from main station in Genoa to Boccadasse with my daughter. Took nearly 2 hours but a pleasant walk especially along Corso Italia. Village is tiny but very attractive. A few bars and restaurants but these were busy so we didn't try any. Little winding streets are cute.

This area is next to Genova, around 20 minutes with the bus from city center. It's village with some small beaches. We walk through town, next to the shore. At the smallest beach there are some bars. Prices are more expensive here, had a beer for 4 euros at a snackbar! Better bring your own food and drinks! At the... More

This is maybe one of the best thing to see in Genova. This former little fishermen area used to be one of the poorest of town, and those last years became one of the most requested places to live in...go get lost in the small streets and stairs, the area is amazing and gets to the Vernazzola area further.

Ate aperitifos in small bar on front before moving onto Osvaldo. Beautiful pebble beach with small bay surrounded by old fashioned trattoria.

It's an OK village, not really worth the high rank on trip advisor... After spending 40 minutes looking for a parking space (parked almost 2 miles away from the beach), the actual spot turned out to be a little dissapointing. Far too crowded, very small beach, not too clean...not really a must see...

Spent the day sitting outside having a drink in Boccadasse. Great atmosphere and very beautiful. I can't wait to go back!
