Boccadasse, Genoa

(3,000+ reviews on the web)
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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. Add Boccadasse and other attractions to your Genoa trip itinerary using our Genoa family vacation planner.
