Can’t help but think I was completely oversold this on the “top 15 things to do in Genoa” leaflet. Having walked for more than an hour to get there, my friend and I were completely underwhelmed by what we saw. And when exactly were all...More

Close to Genoa and easy to get to by bus (#42). Lovely views from the cliffs. Some of the restaurants had great views of the sea.

A beautiful spot along the sea. When I was visiting, the seas were rough and the weather stormy. It added to the beauty of the coastline and the old city, imagining a time over 500 years ago and looking off into the distance envisoning the...More

Very similar to the pictures you get in Cinque Terre, but in the middle of Genoa. When we arrived there was a group singing some traditional Ligurian song.

Good alternative if you don’t have time to visit Cinque Terre, since Boccadasse is just south of downtown Genoa. Beautiful colors especially at sunset. Tips: - make sure to taste a local Gelato - visit sure before sunset - if you don’t have a car,...More

I could also recommend scanning through Airbnb. I've stayed in an apartment only 400m away from Bocadasee and it was fairly cheap.
