Come explore the charming and friendly city of Genoa with us! My confession: I was once a skeptic of this city, but one visit changed it all. On our first trip, we landed in the bustling downtown area and I was underwhelmed, but a few months later, I was invited back and this time, we explored the coastal region. And let me tell you, it was nothing short of spectacular. Imagine waking up to the sound of the waves and taking a morning stroll with the stunning view of the ocean as your backdrop.
The coastline side of Genoa offers stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, with its rugged cliffs and rocky beaches. This area is a stark contrast to the bustling downtown, which is filled with narrow streets and tall buildings. The clear blue waters and fresh sea air create a serene atmosphere, making it the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll or a picnic with a view. The view from this side of the city is truly breathtaking, offering a glimpse of the natural beauty that Genoa has to offer.
Just a 30-minute drive south will bring you to the picturesque town of Recco, where you can relax on the beach, watch surfers ride the waves, and soak in the breathtaking sunset.
Trust me, it’s the perfect way to end a weekend getaway. To fully experience the beauty of Genoa, I highly recommend renting a scooter to explore the coast and have the flexibility to travel from one town to the next. Cars can be a bit pricey and challenging with the parking situation, so it’s definitely worth considering before your trip. Pack your bags and get ready for an unforgettable journey in Genoa!
