Sirens
Feb 2021
You hear sirens regularly here. Those vehicles with sirens come to a stop here and do their thing. Any place where you hear so much sirens is not good for tourists to visit. Dilapidated place.

A huge harbour
Jul 2020 • Couples
A huge harbour full of excellent and enjoyable things to see and do. The harbour is bigger than i thought. It has an aquarium, a maritime museum, it a port full of cruise ships and super yachts. It also has some nice restaurants. I went to a very nice burger restaurant over on the far east side.

Enjoyable walking
Aug 2020 • Solo
The port area of Genoa is a good place for a stroll, through all the streets and alleyways. It is an interesting historical city. There are plenty of tourist attractions at the docks area also, such as the aquarium.

My typical Sunday walk
Mar 2020
I've been living in Genova for the past 6 months and Porto Antico is one of my favorite spots to end my wanderer walks around the city. It is a quite popular place, but it offers a nice view of the yachts and cruise ships...and the city. If you want a Sunday afternoon walk, a place to see the sunset from close to the sea, but without getting out of the city center...or if you want a midnight romantic walk, this is one of those places.

Old Port
Nov 2019
From the Ascensore Castellelto we can see the old port. Days later when we walked to the cruise ship terminal we passed by the old port to see what it was all about, there were Aguarium, a unique shaped like bubble building, a pirates ship and a crane that looks like octopuslifts, that takes tourists up for the harbor view, that was an interesting place to visit. Although we didn't have time to stay, at least we know what this place can offer. Happy Travelling!

Time-out
Feb 2020
The Old Port area is a nice place for a quiet time-out from all the sight seeing. Lots of little cafes and restaurants to suit everyone's taste, benches to sit on and watch the world pass by, a pirate ship, the aquarium, the maritime museum, including a submarine, and lots more to see and do.

A nice port to visit
Jan 2020
A beautiful area to enjoy the sunshine and take pictures. There are restaurants, museums, an aquarium, an tourist information office, public toilets, supermarkets... in the surroundings. You can basically find everything you as a travel need in this area. Be aware of scams and thieves as there’re creepy-looking people looking for targets. Another recommendation for food: Opposite the Galata Museo del Mare is a street full of shops and restaurants owned by Chinese. Though I didn’t try, it seems that there are plenty of cheap-eat options if you fancy Chinese/ Asian food.

Experience It
Nov 2019
We decided to walk back to the cruise terminal from town just to see the old port and the marina. It was an interesting walk with many sights to see but also mingling with other visitors. Good experience as a traveler in a foreign land!

Not the prettiest port
Jun 2019
We have been here many times on cruises and rarely get off. To be honest it is nearly always raining. On the few occasions we have explored the port it did not feel very clean.

Repurposed Port
Feb 2020 • Solo
The ‘Old Port’ captures Genoa’s former golden age as a seafaring city and combines this with a modern, tourist-friendly twist. From old galleons to modern yachts and converted cotton warehouses that are now restaurants and art spaces. I enjoyed walking around the area and the views of Genoa from here are great. Be sure to check out the colorful and historic Palazzo di San Giorgio.
