Re: train to port

by microsensazione

I think you mean naval port.
Well "Genova Porta Principe" train station is approximately 200 meters far from naval port.

Re: train to port

by globetrott

"Genua Stazione Principe" is the main train station in Genua / Genoa and its beginning is in fact not much more than maybe 200 meters from the port of Genua, BUT that does not mean that walking to your cruiseship at the end of the port does not take more than 30-50 min. to walk to !!!
Only some small ships and some ferries are docked at the beginning of the wide portarea, the larger ships are docked at the very end of the port and getting there might be a labyrinth of paths that are partly forbidden for security reasons etc.
In my opinion it really makes sense to take a taxi especially when you are arriving shortly before you have to board the ship.
---
otherwise leave you luggage at the station and take a walk ! When you have found your ship, try to walk there and see what happens.
This walk takes you first through some narrow streets of the old city and the rest is in the port already.

Make sure your train does NOT go the Statione Genua Brignole !!!

Travel Tips for Genoa

Must be something about my demographic group

by caffeine_induced78

"Prego, Prego," they said to me. They said this to me in those short skirts, those of-course unattractive women.

What does "Prego," mean? "Your welcome" is what it means. I had not paid them nor was I ever going to so why they said "Prego" to open it up is beyond my understanding. I guess something about being a twenty something male travelling alone without fear in some seedy areas just screams - "willing to pay for sex." It's happened to me in Mexico, Istanbul, and now Italy.

Those were the narrowest alleys in Genoa that I found. Those alleys are where I found the prostitutes. Trying to order a beer and after having said "beer" to be followed by a blank stare I tried my limited Spanish to say "Cerveza," and hoped it was close enough to the Italian word for beer.

It worked!

Salone Nautico di Genova

by Elisabcn

Genoa is still a sea power. It's port is one of the most important commercial ports of the Mediterranean sea. Another important activity related to the sea is Genoa's Salone Nautico, one of the biggest floating shows in the world that in 2008 celebrated with success its 48 birthday. Boats, motorboats, yatchs. . . . during one week, at the beginning of october, Genoa is blocked by sailing lovers and curious (it's very impressive to see!) and don't expect to find a room in a hotel if you have not booked some months before. Apart from the fairy itself in La Fiera area, in other parts of the city there are always other activities related to the show like expositions, sport activities. . . During that week the sea is the star!

Old side-streets

by levente_

One of the most attractive things about Genoa is that from busy 'beaten paths' like Via San Lorenzo, you can loose yourself within seconds in the labyrinth of narrow, very Italian, very atmospheric and sometimes very seedy (but extremely photogenic!) side-streets.

On both sides of Via San Lorenzo, worth entering at random any of these streets - due to the size of the old town centre (Centro Storico), you can't really get lost. So forget the map for a while and just wander around - during the day it is safe and it is really worth it.

You can also approach this labyrinth from Via Garibaldi, where again you can just jump into any of the side-streets leading down into the maze of the Centro Storico.

Photographic opportunities are endless, if you like small shops, drying clothes, locals caught in various moments of their everyday life.

Cristoforo Colombo Airport

by giampiero6

Genova's small and very convenient airport is well served by major airlines. Since there are no longer any direct flights from LAX to anywhere in Italy, it can be a more convenient gateway to where you're going. For example, whereas I used to fly into Milano, I could now connect from LAX-Paris directly to Genova. Consider your options when flying into Italy and if you're going to the Ligurian Coast give it a try. The airport is amply served by Alitalia (terrible) Air France and other airlines.
