While you’re in port, explore the city of Genoa the easy way with a hop-on hop-off bus tour. Join the tour at any one of the eight stops along the route, enjoying the commanding view from the open-air top deck, listening to audio commentary about the city’s history and landmarks along the way.
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.
This shore excursion begins within a 10-minute walk from the Genoa cruise port, so it’s up to you to decide what time to return to your ship. Please give yourself enough time to not only enjoy the excursion but also get back to port in time. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
