Full description
World Heritage-listed Genoa is the capital of Liguria and birthplace of Christopher Columbus. See many of its monuments and its grand 16th and 17th century palaces on the Strade Nueve, on a hop-on hop-on sightseeing tour. With your 24 or 48-hour ticket you’ll see more than just splendid buildings. Genoa presents a multitude of hidden gems waiting for you to discover.

The double-decker bus departs from Piazza Caricamento and provides easy access to both of the city’s train stations, as well as ideal stopping points for shopping. Explore at your own pace as you hop off at attractions such as the Cathedral San Lorenzo, built in a patchwork of styles, from Gothic to Renaissance.

Admire the huge Palazzo Ducale before jumping back on the bus to continue your journey to the city’s splendid museums. The town's best art collections can be visited in the 3 palaces of the Musei di Strada, where you’ll find masterpieces by Rubens along with many other local and Italian artists.

Enjoy 360-degree panoramic views from the top deck. Take a stroll along the elegant Via Garibaldi, located in the cultural center of Genoa and lined with grand buildings and fine stores.

By the rejuvenated Porto Antico you’ll find a number of attractions suitable for the entire family, including the aquarium where you can watch dolphins play.

Buses run daily, every 30 minutes, until early evening, when you can take some time to discover Genoa’s active nightlife scene. The hub of evening activity lies in the historic part of town along the stretch bordered by Piazza Sarzano and Via San Lorenzo.

Back on the bus the next day, within the ticket’s 24 or 48-hour period, you can stop off at the Bigo, a replica of a device that was used years ago to offload cargo from the ships.

You’ll enjoy multilingual commentary on the bus, making it an ideal way to take in Genoa’s best attractions in a convenient, comfortable, and fun way.

Genoa is a beautiful city even for those who live in the surroundings like me. It is worthwhile to visit it in this way. As far as safety is concerned, more attention is needed above all by passing near the trees, since anyone sitting upstairs outdoors risks pecking the branches in the face.

Mostly convenient

The first stop was moved due to construction and the note of where to find the changed puck up point was difficult to figure out. The other thing is that lots of people just got for the first time and paid on the spot, and not at the place designated as the beginning. Good to know for the future that you can just get on wherever there is a stop and pay right then. No need to pay in advance online.
