- See the best of Genoa during a shore excursion with a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour
- Set your own pace for exploring Genoa's main sights
- Visit attractions such as the Ducal Palace, the Bigo and Via San Lorenzo
- Get on and off the bus as many times as you want during your 48-hour ticket
What You Can Expect
Disembark at any stop along the route in order to visit a nearby attraction. At the Piazza Caricamento stop, for example, venture to the waterfront for a ride on the “Bigo,” Genoa’s panoramic lift that offers incredible views over the whole city and sometimes even out to Corsica.
See what makes this historic center a UNESCO World Heritage Site, from the palazzos-turned-museums of Via Garibaldi to the aquarium (of which the city is very proud). Your bus ticket is valid for 48 hours, and you’re free to get on and off as many times as you like during that period, making this an excellent way to see Genoa at your leisure.
Buses leave from each stop listed below every hour. Please refer to the itinerary section below to see a complete list of stops.

Genoa is a very hilly city and the hop on hop off bus is a great way to get around. You need to do a bit of research before you go as there are some great sights to see on almost every stop and some beautiful churches which are not listed in the map provided. Audio guide was good and the commentary informative.
This tour was amazing!
Very easy to hop on and off the bus, which because it was a cruise day(in port) ran every 20 minutes instead of the usual 30 minutes. Very friendly staff and a good way to see the beautiful city of Genoa.
Did the whole tour first (one hour) to decide where to stop off at next time round.
very good easy to find just outside the main port building nice cheap way to see the city
Great service you can see the city and make sure the bus is going to be there for you at any time
Wonderful way to see the city without walking excessively or paying for an esorted tour. Pickup point is very close to the Port so it ifs a doable tour for people with disabilities or other mobility issues. Cost of the tour if you purchase your ticket from the bus tour operator is $15 euros. The seating is comfortable and the open top level of the bus can be covered when it is raining. The audio describing the points of interest was great but not so good on a tour in Mallorca. Overall, great value.
Great option for a quick overview of the city and sights!
Enjoyed the tour. Had the same problem with this tour as with EVERY tour with hop on hop off through Europe. It is not clear where to catch the bus. No maps that can be seen are printed on the internet and often if there is a location listed- it is so general as to not be able to be found. I would not buy tickets in advance for any of the tours. Look up the tours locally and buy the ticket on the bus. There are several companies and you should go with the first one you find, not do a scavenger hunt for a bus in a strange city.
