We did our own thing, going to Portofino by train then taking the narrow gauge railway from Genoa up into the mountains and back. Both trips represented good value for money and were easily accomplished. Genoa is a small extremely hilly city, not easy to circumnavigate on foot but the area round the old port has been developed and is user friendly. Read Less

Genoa was our embarkation port. The walk from Piazza Principe termini to the cruise port is only 10 minutes. However, there are some stairs and crossing a busy street. After disembarkation we stored our luggage at the train station. We took a train to Santa Margharita Ligure, about 1 hr from Genoa. Then a bus to Portofino which took 30 mins. Portofino was pretty and we had lunch there, but small. Next time we will stay in Santa Margharita Ligure. We didn't actually see much of Genoa. Read Less

We went to Sante Margherita and visited Genova with an organized tour (not MSC`s) Nice, but nothing really worth visiting. Feasible on your own.

This is not the first time for us in Genoa. We've seen most of the sights. An excellent gluten free pizza in Rossopomodoro at the port with a great view of the yacht.

The port is right in the town. We took a sight seeing bus to the Ducal Palace. Because there was very little information in English, we couldn't work out initially what there was to see there. Once up the stairs and in the main throne room, we found some information in English. Up the tower to the cells, and a bit more information. They were showing a film in relation to the history of the cells but all in Italian. The sight seeing bus was worthwhile. Read Less

A lot of places to visit and not enough time to do it. We took a hope-on/hope-off bus it was a good value.

Not much to see. Port area has been recently revamped but abit obvious for my tastes. A word of warning, we wandered into a quite unsavoury area just behind the port area where ladies were working at lunchtime, we felt a little unsafe and felt a bit trapped in the maze of streets, we got out unscathed however, just take care where you roam.

We didn't stop in Portofino due to bad weather but went to Genoa instead & had a pleasant stroll around the city & visited the Cathedral which is certainly worth a visit.

Our least favourite port, it was incredibly industrious. I would definitely recommend taking an excursion, or else you'll find yourself walking back to the ship after 30 minutes.

Was OK, but keep to the tourist areas. Used hop on hop off bus that stops at the entrance to the terminal. Lift to higher areas provides great views.
