It was a lovely sunny October day, we strolled along the Corsa Italia from the city centre as we heard about Boccadasse. What a tranquil feeling, it reminded me of a small Cornish fishing village gem or a mini Cinque Terra town, literally a haven....More

Sorry to say that this seems overrated. You have to take the bus and then walk to get to a very small area where there is a rocky beach and few terraces. Nervi way better, just don't get down from the bus and it will...More

Must see in GENOVA. Nice fish restaurants close to shore. A nice, peaceful and relaxing place... You can even swim there in summer season...

This is a charming little fishing port with fantasic views if you are prepared to climb to the top of the Cap di Santa Chiara. There was a excellent little fish restaurant up the track leading to the Church. My only complain is the rubbish...More

Had a great lunch and stroll around this picturesque corner of Genoa overlooking the sea. Easy to get there by bus. A few good looking restaurants--we ate at GE8317. A great balance to the grittiness of the rest of the city.

A beautiful little beach town just outside of Genoa, accessible by public transportation and cabs from the city. Worth visiting for lunch or a half-day, try La Cambusetta if you want to be right on the water. If you want to swim, there is a...More

A beautiful fishing village & tiny harbor with colourful facade are tucked away in Boccadesse. It's a hidden gem. Offers such character and beauty. A must see.

If you have some spare time and especially some leisure time when you're in Italy, Boccadasse is the perfect place to spend it. It is small and kind of hidden, but it's really beautifull to have a good meal, an icecream or just time for...More

Boccadasse is a tiny little pearl, a gorgeous mini-harbor ringed by hillside houses, lovely cafes, fishing boats and a tiny pebbled beach. Lovely by day, it is positively electric by night as tourists (mostly Italian) mingle with locals on the piazza, the seaside bars, the...More

Nothing crazy about it, it's a bit expensive, but if you don't have much time in Genoa and you want to a taste of the villages near the sea, this port is good for a break from the city. If you go by night, note...More

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
