Getting There in GenoaEdit This
You can get to Genoa by land, sea, air and ... on foot. The "Riviera dei fiori" highway runs all along the Italian Riviera from Ventimiglia to Albenga and then it takes you to Genoa. Two other main roads can take to the town from the Turin and Milan higways. You can also use the regional roads around Liguria, they make you run slower but in change they give you the possibility to meet interesting villages and towns, and to enjoy the food and the people. Best seasons to go around by car are Spring and Autumn as summer is often a queing up to the beaches. You can have air flight to Genoa Airport from some of the European major cities and from all over the world through Milano airport which is about 150 km far away. From Genoa airport all the main towns are connected by main roads and highways. You can as well come by sea as some of the most important shipping & cruising companies have their South Europe branch here. Genoa is also backed with a very good net of cycling and trekking paths along the coast and in the inland. Even if you are not an expert walker or a professional cyclist you can stop in some hotels nearby, and go to destination. During summer time a good way is to use the train. They are not expensive, they travel almost everywhere and they show you all the coast, while arriving to town, with all the beaches and villages, just sitting and looking out of the windows.
