Walking around the steep little roads sounded by the small coloured houses typical of the ligurian old fishing villages is a unique experience. Boccadasse is an old gift left intact inside the town of Genoa. Worth a visit!

Definitely a place to visit when I'm Genoa. Had fish by the sea and enjoyed the great view Boccadasse had to offer!

This is not just the best and most beautiful place in Genova, but one of the most unique places in Italy. You surely know "5 Terre", so this place is kind of the same without the huge amount of tourists that go to 5 Terre....More

Nothing to say: if you're visiting Genoa or Ligury in general, you cannot miss this touching bay. It's the right balance of colours, sounds and smells. It's also a great place for an aperitif after work in order to relax!

If you have seen all the usual tourist stuff in Genoa and have half a day to spare then catch the bus from Stazione Brignole to Boccadasse.. You can walk up past the harbour to admire the views towards the Portofino Peninsula. Then walk back...More

We've gone to see a bit of a sea on our trip and even we didn't expect, we had a swim and sunbathing on a beach. If I could I would order accommodation at this place so I could spend more time here. We visited...More

Response from Nicoboo | Reviewed this property |
Yes, you should! In a day you can take a bus until Boccadasse from the city centre and at the same time visit the old town. Unfortunatly one day isn't enough to visit completely the city, but i think that these two places... More
