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

Beautiful little bay with everything needed for a relaxing break. Easy transport to the sights of Genoa and the Italian Riviera when feeling more active.

incontournable, unmissable. always, at any time, in any case. just go, and see by yourselves. I'd recommend getting yourself a drink before dining, or later on, and enjoying it right on the pebble beach

I will write this for international tourists especially: Just GO TO SEE THIS BEAUTY. It's a simple beach, apparently nothing incredibile, but I always found there a magic atmosphere and an authentic italian feeling. Just go to spend some time there, it's worth seeing!

Place is absolutely adorable! Worth to sea, can also go to swim. Is not a sandy beach but we saw lots of families with babies and kids there: swimming, playing around and having fun. Small bar-pizzeria at the seaside is perfect to have lunch next...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
