Often considered one of the gems of Genoa due to its rustic and unspoilt nature, Boccadasse has all the charms of a former fishing village. The pastel coloured buildings sit along the shore of small pebbled bays where people dip their feet in the water that is said to have healing properties. Along the narrow, cobbled streets there are small cafes and bars that make a change from the large streets of central Genoa.
There are a few ways you can get from central Genoa to Boccadasse, many choose to walk. If you’re feeling ambitious, the Corso Italia is the road that runs along the coastline and leads you from the centre of Genoa to Boccadasse, it takes around an hour to walk but you’ll see wonderful views and there are plenty of small shops and restaurants to stop in on the way.
