Car rental near cruise port

by BLove

Arriving Roayl Caribbean Navigator of the Seas on Aug 17..would like to rent a car for the day to drive to Portofino. Is there a rental car location at or near the cruise port?

Re: Car rental near cruise port

by cgf

you'll find there rent a car, but I got a question, at Portofino where do you think to leave the car on Aug.17th?

Re: Car rental near cruise port

by craic

the train, as usual in Italy - is an excellent option

in this case get off at S.Margharita and catch the bus which waits outside the station to take the 10 minute journey to Portofino.

when i was in portofino i noticed very little parking

Re: Car rental near cruise port

by cgf

it's very little and sure very full on Aug.17th

train + bus is the best (and maybe faster) solution for middle August.

Re: Car rental near cruise port

by craic

and there is not a hell of a lot to do in Portofino - there are very high end shops and cafes of course

maybe think of stopping off at another village on that train line?

Camogli is a lovely place

Re: Car rental near cruise port

by cgf

Travel Tips for Genoa

Visit the Port

I found my family history.

My big grandfather borned near Genova in 1865. (Lumarzo)

I visited churches for to obtain information about him with a guy I met in Internet: Andrea Schenone. He was very friendly with me!!!

More Info (English at Bottom)

Estuve en Genova donde encontre informacion de mi bisabuelo, que me servira para intentar obtener la ciudadania europea previendo algun trabajo en Europa en el futuro.

Genova es una ciudad... No, linda no es. Tiene algunos edificios muy lindos, pero el estado de conservacion es malo (me estoy complicando el leguaje para la traduccion al ingles...:-) )
Me parecio una ciudad sucia... sin mantenimiento.

El Youth hostel esta en una montana y tiene una vista espectacular de la ciudad y el puerto. Por cierto el puerto fue remodelado en 1992 porque Colon era Genoves... jeje

**********ENGLISH *************
I was in Genoa (Italy) were I found info about my big granfather. With that info I will try to obtain the european citizenship.

Genoa isn't a pretty city, but some buildings are very nice. Unfourtunately the buildings it needs maintenance service. It looks like a dirty city.

The Youth Hostel it has a great view of the city, because it's located at the top of a mountain. The panoramic view from my Hostel and to wlak for little streets with Ilaria and Andrea.

The aquarium

by sim1

The aquarium is open a lot, so it's not that difficult to plan it in your time schedule while visiting Genoa. The hours are rather confusing as they differ which day of the week it is and also which months. You can find a good overview of the opening times on the official website of the aquarium : Opening times

The entrance fee is 12.50 euro per person. When I visited in October 2003 it was so very quiet, no line-ups and no waiting time to get inside. But by looking at the queuing system in front of the aquarium I suspect that it can get very busy here. So when you plan to go during the high season this might be something to take into consideration.

If you want more more info on the aquarium please take a look at their website : Genoa aquarium

Some widely used stuffs (i.e....

by utttz

Some widely used stuffs (i.e. things), were invented in genoa:
the first bank
the first stock exchange
the fabric used for blue jeans (btw: great exibition of ancient arazzi made on this fabric)

but the one I prefer is a 'trick' used by genoa republic to deal on a parity basis with all the other kingdom in europe: at the turn of the first millennium a republic was considered a 'wrong' form of government and an ambassador from a republic was not fully entitled to deal with kings... how to solve this form of governement racism? I think genoise people had a good idea... Genoa was transormed in a kingdom, the kingdom of Our Lady... with all tha papers an stamps needed to have an official kingdom... As the queen was a bit 'virtual', just under the queen there was a republic to run the ordinary administration... but abassadors and so on were ambassador of the kingdom of our lady of genoa...

DOLCEACQUA, north of...

by Janina_B.

DOLCEACQUA, north of Ventimiglia, is a very special place. Its medieval inhabitants knew how to protect themselves against the heat. The narrow, strenuous streets will make you feel in another time dimension.

Statione Brignole

by globetrott

It looks rather like a Palazzo - BUT it is one of the 2 big train-stations :

Genua Brignole - on the east part of Genua .

When making an appointement or hotel-reservation simply make sure, you leave at the right station !!

And if you are lucky and have an appointement with Chiara...

...THIS is the station, where she will meet you, as it is less complicated to park her car in that area ( BUT it is complicated enough to get a parking !!!)
