Genoa City Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Board one of the open-top double-decker buses to begin your tour of Genoa at any of the 8 stops along the route. Enjoy wonderful views from the top of the bus of city landmarks like the iconic lighthouse and the huge port, and listen to commentary about Genoa’s history and monuments as you go.

    Get off the bus at any point to explore one of the attractions that’s nearby. From the Piazza Caricamento stop, for instance, head for the waterfront to visit the fantastic aquarium or ride the panoramic lift known as ‘Bigo’ for 360-degree views of the city from a dizzying height. On a clear day, you might even see Corsica on the horizon.

    Wander the alleys of the UNESCO-listed historic center, including Via Garibaldi’s former palaces, and pay a visit to one of Europe’s oldest confectioneries for a sweet treat. You’re free to discover Genoa at your leisure, knowing you’ve got a ride to the next stop whenever you want it.

    With a ticket good for 48 hours, hop on and off as many times as you like during the circuit of the city. Buses leave from each stop every hour.

    Great way to get a good idea of Genoa and find the highlights. Ear phones not working on one of the buses which was a shame so missed our exit stop! Helpful staff mostly.

    The tour is OK, with just one route lasting one hour so rather expensive compared to Hop On Hop Off bus routes in other European cities. However, that was the least of my problems. First, I paid 18 Euros for 24 hours and the conductor told me, without prompting, that I could

    Most cities have a Hop-on Hop-off tour. This one was not the best of Genova.. It did not include the Port of Genoa or the Beach area, both of which are quite beautiful. The 30-minute stop around lunch time wasn't even near any Italian restaurants.
