Travel Guide for Genoa, Italy 2017

Palm trees, expensive boats and beautiful buildings - see the highlights from my trip to Genoa, Italy to feed your travel bug.

Photographs and words by Rosa Fairfield

When I visited Milan last week, I took the train from Milano Centrale to Genoa so I could spend the day there. It has become one of my favourite places, with its glamorous Italian Riviera vibe. Here are my highlights from the trip:

The harbour jetty (Isola delle Chiatte)

Located by the aquarium, the many benches on this floating platform make it a great place to sit and enjoy the view of all the luxe boats in the harbour. This is also a great place to take a photograph, as it has a brilliant view of Genoa.

Sitting under the palm trees

Around the other side of the harbour, there are palm trees with benches underneath them. I spent a happy hour sunbathing on one of these benches. It's a great place to relax.

The View

If you walk up the steps by the main train station, there is a great view of Genoa bellow and the surrounding buildings in the hillside above. It gives a different perspective to the view at the harbour.

Piazza De Ferrari 

This was one of the prettiest areas, with the impressive fountain surrounded by beautiful intricate buildings. This is a nice place to sit or you can explore the shops along Via XX Septembre.

The Biosphere

It's very small but a interesting place to see, with tropical looking plants and these really amazing pink coloured birds.


I really enjoyed Genoa, my feet didn't so much as all the walking I did led to many, many blisters.
