“Probably nice in good weather and around lunchtime.”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

It was freezing the day we went and we had to reverse our itinerary due to traffic related to a bus drivers strike in Genoa. Had the weather been nice and we had done the right order, lunch probably would have been lovely there. Otherwise, not much to see.

“a small town into the town”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

you're in Genoa but you're also in a small cosy fishermen's village - you can go there walking along Corso Italia - a beachside avenue that's very popular among people who live in Genoa, for walking/skating/going by bike in the evening

“Lovely!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

A really nice place at the end of Corso Italia. The small bay "walled" by the typical genovese houses is a great spot to see the sunset or go for an evening ice cream. A place not to miss in Genova!

“Romantic little place”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

We took the bus here from the city center, and walked back along the pier. Boccadasse is small and charming, a perfect place to have a picnic while watching the fishermen below.

“Completely different ambience from Old Genoa”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

A very easy 15 minute bus ride (number 42 from Via Dante – 1.5 euros each) takes you to Boccadasse, which was once the seaside holiday spot for the Genovese. Now, at 4 kms from the centro storico it’s just a lovely outlying suburb, but populated by very real fishermen side by side with wealthy villas and apartments.
It makes for a very pleasant day trip. There are lovely little bars for coffee and a pastry as well as a couple of good restaurants for a good seafood meal.
