The sixth largest city in Italy, Genoa, is a beautiful port city in the Italian Riviera. Sheltered by the mountains and bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, Genoa enjoys a mild climate all year round. Historically and culturally very rich, Genoa boasts a wide range of monuments, cathedrals and palaces. Most tourist attractions are located in Piazza Ferrari, Genoa's main square, and in Via Garibaldi, famous for its baroque buildings. However, the "Duomo", Genoa's stunning Cathedral, lies hidden in the old town - an enchanting maze of narrow cobbled streets. A visit to Bocadasse, a picturesque fishing neighbourhood of old pastel-coloured houses, will introduce you to romantic Genoa, while a boat ride will unveil the magnificent view of Genoa's famous port from the sea. The birthplace of Christopher Columbus is also famous for its excellent cuisine, luxurious boutiques, elegant seaside resorts and extraordinary offer of outdoor activities.

Which is the main airport in Genoa?

Why travel by plane to Genoa?

There are plenty of excellent reasons to choose flights instead of trains or buses to Genoa. Firstly, there's the issue of journey times. Flights will take around two hours 20 minutes, whether passengers fly from Manchester or London. That compares with a minimum journey time of 12 hours by train (and usually far longer). Prices aren't excessive, either, thanks to a variety of budget fares, so flying to Genoa doesn't have to be much more expensive than taking the b us. Genoa Airport isn't far from the city, making transfers simple. And it's also conveniently located for those who intend to stay near the coast, being close to resorts like Savona and Arenzano.

Before you travel to Genoa by plane - good to know!

This useful ticket entitles the holder to free public transport for 24 hour periods and covers subways, buses, funicular railways and suburban trains. When that's sorted out, there's a lot to do. The palaces of Via Garibaldi are a remarkable sight, as is the stunning Cathedral of San Lorenzo. Families will love the ultra-modern Aquarium, while the Palazzo Spanola's National Gallery is heaven for art fans. And, if time allows, try to get out to see Cinque Terre: a string of beautiful coastal towns that's very close to Genoa.
