“good way to see the city”
Review of City Sightseeing

City Sightseeing
Ranked #13 of 45 Tours in Genoa
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 June 2017

We took the open top bus from the port so that we could see as much of the city as possible. After completing the first full round we stayed on until we reached the centre of the town and the went to explore the places that we had seen from the bus. We were then able to get back on the bus to go back to the port, which meant an inexpensive trip to the city.

The protecting bars on the top are annoying. They don't let u take nice pictures. I guess that if you have kids it's safer for them though. Wifi takes forever to work and you have to wait a lot every stop. Overall it's ok for what you pay.

Got this bus the first day in Genoa and it was a great way of finding out where everything was and where I'd like to re-visit. Got the 48 hour pass and first of all went round all the stops back to the beginning at the Porto Antico, then stayed on and got off at a stop to see one of the many attractions. The second day I used it to get around the city again and it was very useful - roughly every half hour and once you've paid, it's cheaper than taxis. Friendly staff who spoke excellent English, though the music on the earphones gets a bit annoying - only so much Vivaldi you can listen to in one day! Highly recommended.

I picked the bus up from the port area, , it was only a 50 minute round trip, it was not worth he money , you could walk the same route in 1 .15minutes,
They only have 1 bus , so if you are getting off and on you may have to wait a long time .frankly I thought it was a waste of money

We went on this tour to get a feel for the city, hoping to learn some of the history too, however, we were disappointed with the quality of the commentary, it was too fast and too brief and made assumptions that you knew about local history.

I feel Genoa has more to offer than this very poor example of a tour. We have found out more just wandering the streets chatting to friendly locals.
