Amazing and beautiful place hidden in the rocks. A perfect place to sit with a drink and admire the costline and sun. Filled with few small restaurants where you can have tasty seafood. Or just sit on the stones with a cold drink.

Boccadasse is a small, old fishing village in the suburbs of Genoa, a short bus ride along the coastline. We probably didn’t visit on the best day as the weather was poor, it was very wet. Not really that much to see here. Quite pretty and set into the hillside rocks with a few fish restaurants. Don’t go out of your way to visit this place.

My partner and I came here for a few cheeky wines and we loved it very quaint and colourful worth a visit for sure.

We walked from the centre of Genoa to Boccadasse mainly because of the Montalbano connection. Luckily it was a beautiful day for a walk because, to be honest, Boccadasse isn’t worth the effort! Yes, it’s pretty but not as lovely as some of the other fishing villages around. Impossible to get a drink as local bar/cafe staff simply ignore you or are pretty rude. Overpriced and overrated. Take a boat trip to Santa Marguerita or Camogli instead.
