The Old Port is a central point as from there you can get to all the acquarium stuff, città dei bambini, Eataly, Galeone and so on and so forth. Also a nice place to have kids spend some energy, as you will find parks with swings and other games for kids, but also as I was there in October, some... More

This is a good place to walk around and to perhaps get a ferry or visit the aquarium or the pirate ship, good eateries or somewhere to sit with a glass of prosecco and watch the world go by. For walking, running or sitting, plenty to see and do.

The Old port of Genoa is an area being redeveloped. There are a number of newly updated restaurants and a few ready for updating. Visit the Aquarium if you have children and perhaps the pirate ship also

Interesting to walk around. Beautiful old buildings with stunning frescoes. The Neptune ship replica is quite something to see.

I am not into sailing but just walking around and looking at the boats and wondering who they belong to makes for a fun time. It's also a nice walk away from the hustle and tourists. Really worth a little detour.

The old port is a really nice and pleasant one. You'll be hable to walk by it for a long distance and there are things to do along. Mostly if you're a photographer you'll find many spots and angles that worth the shot. So, have fun.

It is a fun place to explore during the day. I would not explore this area as a lone female in the evening. You can purchase a ticket for a boat ride, visit the aquarium, do some shopping or just walk around the area. There are street vendors so they will try to sell you their wares. It is one... More
