A maritime city with a glorious past, Genoa brims with the spirit of constant arrivals and departures. Characterized by its medieval streets, palm-lined waterfront plazas stacked up a steep hill, and Renaissance palazzi marked by wartime damage, Genoa is a product of its history. A hop-on-hop-off bus tour gives you easy access to important and cultural sections of the city, plus it saves up considerably on time and money. All you need to do is hop on at any one of the stops, and hop off when something catches your eye. Explore the urban complex of Via Garibaldi, loaded with palaces, or experience tranquil pleasures at Boccadasse, a tiny fishing village within the city limits. Marvel at the San Lorenzo Cathedral featuring aspects of both Romanesque and Gothic and enjoy catches like the Hummingbird Forest, the Biosphere, the Galata Maritime Museum, and a panoramic lift that shoots up to 131 feet above sea level.

The service is great and the team are courteous and delightful; however, there is too much time wasted waiting for buses. The frequency of buses could be improved, so there is less wait time.

Nice bus tour but very limited commentary. Would have loved to hear more about the history and present of the city. Most of the time had to just listen to the classical music recording.
