A couple of miles or so from the centre of Genoa, we found it OK but not worth it unless you are passing of going for a meal in one of the small restaurants.

Boccadasse is located by Corso italia,closer to Brignole Station than Principe.It's a little fisherman'village with such a wonderful energy...the sea, the beauty of the pastel coloured houses, the smell of great food coming out from the many typical taverns and cafes.
I advise to go there at sunset...great ice-cream parlous and take away focaccia, pizza and typical Genoan snacks!

If you do choose to spend time in Genova, as you should, you don't want to leave this spot out. Especially on weekdays, when it's not packed with us locals, you can enjoy a small stone beach, even take a dip if you're equipped, have some local street food from Pestuna (focaccia genovese, focaccia al formaggio, pizza etc...) or a regular meal at Dindi restaurant, then a lavish gelato at the ancient Gelateria Amedeo, all the while looking and listening to the sea and gratefully share the space that local cats will so kindly let you take.
Oh, do not leave a mess of rubbish behind you, please.

Boccadasse gives you the impression of a small fisherman's village, but offers also wonderful restaurants, ice-cream shops and much more.

Easy to reach from Genoa, Boccadasse is worth spending a few hours walking and enjoying the view to the sea. Hop on a bus and continue to Nervi for another stroll at the Passeggiata Anita Garibaldi.
