Boccadasse, Genoa

4.6
#1 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Italian Riviera
Boccadasse, an old mariners' neighborhood, is popular with tourists but retains a traditional charm. Wander its streets and admire the colorful buildings. Sit on the small, rocky beach and watch the fishing boats. This area is also home to a medieval-style castle. Stroll along the Corso Italia for some local atmosphere. Sample the catch of the day at one of the area's seafood restaurants. Put Boccadasse into our Genoa trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I returned in Boccadasse after many years; It is always a unique place, in the city of Genoa, but it is like a sailor on village, out of this world and time, in a sense. ... Beautiful landscaped suggestive corners, scrosi, the only thing is often crowded

  • Characteristic fishermen's Cove, which remains a marvel of nature although the businees prevail on the environment resulting in too many businesses that suffer from very limited spaces at unreasonable prices. It is worth it?

  • A little piece of fishermen under the Genoa waterfront, where time seems to stand still. Spectacular!

Where to stay in Genoa

Located just steps from the city's famous tourist sites, Genoa's centrally located B&Bs and hotels offer comfortable lodgings suitable for all tastes and budgets. To avoid the expense and stress of driving and parking in Genoa's central districts, look for a boutique hotel just outside the city center. Staying out of the busy heart of Genoa is a practical and affordable compromise, offering a good base for exploring numerous fishing villages located along the coastline. Hostels operating in residential areas also offer private parking and easy access to buses into the center of town.
