Really charming fishing village with cute shops and great local food. Beautiful church, small, rocky beach - bring your suit and towel! Lots of photo opportunities. We found a bus (cannot quite remember the number-ask at your hotel. The stop was near Chris Columbus house)...More

It's a very small take on Cinque Terre, but not that different, small cottages and a nice bay. Good option for a short bus trip!

Boccadasse is one of my fave spots in Genova. Not just because I live near there, but the colorful old buildings, the stones and rocks, the alleys that lead you to a small castle and an higher point to enjoy sunset....everything makes this pictoresque area...More

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

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
