With a blend of rich history and cutting-edge modern design, there is little wonder the port of Genoa is the busiest seaport in Italy. Originally built during the middle-ages to facilitate trade, the port on the north-western coast is now a wildly popular destination for travellers eager to explore the magnificent Italian Riveria region of Liguria.
Visitors to the port will first notice the Lanterna lighthouse dominating the skyline, a towering 250-foot tall masonry structure that can boast to be one of the tallest lighthouses in the world. Once docked, passengers disembark via the historic Ponte dei Mille station, a marvel of traditional architecture that boasts ultra-modern facilities specifically designed to make checking in and out as smooth as possible.
The port of Genoa can be reached in a variety of ways. Those travelling from Milan can catch one of the fast hourly trains from the Milano Centrale Railway Station or drive south along the A7 motorway, a straightforward route that passes over the famous river Po. Genoa can also be reached via the E80 that snakes 100-miles along Italy’s glittering northern coast towards the province of Livorno.
A wide variety of ferry routes operate from the port of Genoa. Services regularly traverse the western sea of Italy, delivering passengers to the glittering isles of Corsica and Sardinia as well as the larger island of Sicily found on the toe of the country’s boot.
Other services throughout the week take passengers even further from the Genoese port. This includes a day-long trip south to the Tunisian port of Tunis and an eastward bound service towards the world-renowned cultural hub of Barcelona in Spain. There are also available routes to Skikda in Algeria and a two-day crossover to Tangier Med in Morocco – ports both found on the stunning north African shores of the Alboran Sea.
