Which Genoa train station is best for day trips?

I'm heading to Genoa next month, and I'm currently looking at hotels.

On previous trips we like to make day trips via train.

Looking at Genoa I really want to visit Cinque Terre, Portofino plus no doubt other players once I've done further research....so my question is which is the best train station for this?

I will look for a decent hotel near the station.

All help appreciated.

Thanks.

The main station is Genova Piazza Principe. We like the Bristol Palace, right in the center of town, near the Piazza De Ferrari The trips you mention are from Brignole. Hotels on booking.com.

Genoa has two main stations, Genova Brignole and Genova Piazza Principe. Use the one nearest to your hotel.

Most trains heading eastwards call at both stations. Only a few start at Brignole, so do not call at Piazza Principe.

There are also lots of other smaller stations. So if, for example, you were staying in Nervi, you would use Genova Nervi instead.
