Genoa Cruise Port Facilities?
Except for your ship, there's nothing of compelling interest in the port itself.
A taxi ride to the port from just about anywhere downtown will cost 5 to 10 euros, depending on traffic.
Currency & Best Way to Get Money?
The local currency is the euro. Visit www.xe.com for up-to-the-minute exchange rates. The cheapest and easiest way to get cash is to use your debit card at ATM's, which are plentiful. Just ask for the closest "bancomat."
Italian, of course. Surprisingly little English is spoken.
Where You're Docked?
The marine passenger facility is quite close to the Old Port -- within viewing distance. But, it's located in an industrial area, off a highway. So, for safety's sake, it's best to take a taxi to get there or to any other destination.
