We were in Genoa for Christmas, and since we are both great fans of Montalbano we opted for a nice morning walk out to Boccadasse. We walked along the great (and paved) lido that goes all the way along the coast from the fairground out...More

Really charming fishing village with cute shops and great local food. Beautiful church, small, rocky beach - bring your suit and towel! Lots of photo opportunities. We found a bus (cannot quite remember the number-ask at your hotel. The stop was near Chris Columbus house)...More

It's a very small take on Cinque Terre, but not that different, small cottages and a nice bay. Good option for a short bus trip!

Boccadasse is one of my fave spots in Genova. Not just because I live near there, but the colorful old buildings, the stones and rocks, the alleys that lead you to a small castle and an higher point to enjoy sunset....everything makes this pictoresque area...More

Bocadasse can be visited by a 45 minute walk along the boulevard from Genova. While slightly overrated as #1 attraction, the old fishing village definitely has some authentic charm and cosines. Few restaurants and bars along a small pebbles beach. Some houses lack proper maintenance....More

Even if it is not located in the main centre of Genova, there is a great view from here. It is also a very romantic and unique place.

A very nice addition to a Genova visit! Very cute beach and a great view of the sea! Boccadasse is not far away from Genova, easily reached by bus or by foot over the Cross Italia.

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

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
