A beautiful spot along the sea. When I was visiting, the seas were rough and the weather stormy. It added to the beauty of the coastline and the old city, imagining a time over 500 years ago and looking off into the distance envisoning the...More

Very similar to the pictures you get in Cinque Terre, but in the middle of Genoa. When we arrived there was a group singing some traditional Ligurian song.

I walked here from the Piazza in the centre of town (1 hour brisk walk) along the Corsa Italia and coast road. There are some spectacular coastal scenes along the way that made heading for Boccadasse worthwhile, but apart from a few quaint buildings on...More

We spent our last few hours in Genoa here. The sun came out and the place was incredible. Wasn't too busy and was a perfect way to spend a few hours sat on the pebbles, enjoying the atmosphere and going for a paddle. Bellissimo!!!

Highly recommended to visit. From our hotel we took bus no 15 and then walked left on small streets for about 10". The sea was clean and you could climb on rocks to take photos. Be careful of strong waves though. We had a walk...More

We took a taxi from Genoa to Boccadasse - it was 10 Euros and worth not walking in the heat of the day. The driver dropped us right at the top of the stairs. Although a lot smaller than we were expecting, we were delighted...More

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