“A place for residents entertainment only”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

The place has nothing interesting from a tourist's point of view. But it is a fact that it is the only place left on the city coast that is open to public access. Well, with 3 levels of lanes throughout the coast, and a harbour full of ships, one should not expect more. Just be content with it.

“Lively and fun”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

We had a fun afternoon at Porto Antico, which has been developed into a lively city venue very similar to Baltimore's Inner Harbor to be enjoyed by local people, not just tourists. Besides the Aquarium, there are lots of restaurants, a historic galleon, and nearby historic sights to see.

“The heart of Genova”
Reviewed 23 May 2012 via mobile

Definitely, a landmark to visit. A good place to take pictures. If you pass by, make sure you visit the Aquarium and buy a pesto genovese sauce at Eataly!

“nice place. not too much organized”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

I think the place is nice, clean and not difficul to be found. But in a so large space, I would have expected more initiatives for visitors and citizens also arranged by municipaklity. I have never met lot of people (even in summer period)
