After visiting the immediate area around the port we took a ride on the tourist train for a view of the sights. We were hoping to ride a particular funicular (from info read in a newspaper article) but it was closed.

Loved loved Genoa. Here we had the pass for museums and bus for 15 euros each. We went to maybe 8 museums. The red and white palaces near the tourist bureau were awesome. Four floors of marble stairs and paintings, like famous paintings and furniture to die for. How much money did these people have? Enjoyed Christopher Columbus house and then climbed the tower next door. The big fountain center of town also awesome and so Italian. Mac Donald’s near here if you need a burger or for us a bathroom. The royal palace also wonderful to see. Read Less

Spent 2 nights before the crusie in Genoa , a nice city , we took the ferry to Portofino which was beautiful, It took an hour and a half ferry ride stopping at all the small villages along the way , be careful where you eat In Portofino , avoid Delfinos restaurant , we ordered 5 pizzas and 2 bottles of water and the bill came fo 131 euros when we asked for a break down the pizza were 14 euros bit they charged us a sitting fee and service charge plus the waiter asked for a cash tip on top of that bill . The took advantage of us because we were Americans . Genoa is a nice walk around city the port is busy with lots of activities. You don’t need an excursion for this city . Read Less

We took HOHO bus to tour around the city. You can also take the cruise line shuttle to city center, everything is close by there.

We absolutely loved Genoa! We walked several miles seeing all sides of the city. My wife found an online walking tour. Started in some very narrow, dark passageways filled with shops. It wasn’t scary, just different. Eventually we came upon Christopher Columbus’ home as well as some castle relics. The buildings have such depth and character! My son was desperate to find beach sand at every port for a bottle so we went well out of our way in Genoa. Away from the tourists we found the real city and loved it. Climbed 174 steps for a great view, got yelled at in Spanish for accidentally trespassing on a beach, and found a beautiful pedestrian street for shopping and dining. Embrace Genoa. Read Less

Toured on our own to Portofino and Santa Margharita via train. Highly recommend Santa Margharita - Portofino is crowded, expensive and touristy while SM is a bit quieter (but still touristy). Great seaside meal in SM.

On our own, after exiting the port, we took a train and a bus to Boccadasse and spent a couple hours there - beautiful! Then we took a bus to town and walked for hours, finishing the day at the harbor area attractions.
