  • "Palermo - Genoa GNV"

    We were avoiding flying for environmental reasons so travelled by bus, train and ferry instead. We had an excellent trip with GNV. Efficient service and helpful staff. Very comfortable 4 berth cabin to ourselves - there were 2 of us. Very clean, good shower. The food was very reasonably priced and adequate. Very punctual. I would definitely travel with them again, and on other ferries.

  • "Traversée très agréable"

    Cabines spacieuses, bien équipées, fonctionnelles. Beaucoup d'espace pour se promener. Décor un peu clinquant. Service au bar à café peu efficace.

  • "Alternative to driving"

    What an amazing trip and a lot quicker than driving. The boat is huge and the staff are so helpful but the food does not compare to Sicilian.

Many visitors flock to the city and it has become Sicily's main hub for culture, commerce and tourism. The city's centre has many examples of fine palaces and churches which give way to areas whose way of life doesn't seem to have changed for centuries. This is perhaps most evident in the markets in Palermo, whose Arabic origins can still be seen today thanks to the noise, aromas, colours, narrow streets and with the excellent array of produce on offer and the general 'souk's atmosphere.

Genoa Guide

The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.

The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.

Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
