What to expect

World Heritage-listed, Genoa is the birthplace of Christopher Columbus: see many of its monuments and its grand 16th and 17th-century palaces on the Strade Nuove, on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour. With your 24 or 48-hour ticket, you’ll see more than just splendid buildings: Genoa has a multitude of hidden gems waiting for you to discover.

The double-decker bus departs from Piazza Caricamento and provides easy access to both of the city’s train stations, as well as ideal stopping points for shopping; hop off at attractions such as the Cathedral San Lorenzo, built in a patchwork of styles, from Gothic to Renaissance. Admire the huge Palazzo Ducale, before jumping back on the bus to continue your journey to the city’s splendid museums. The town's best art collections can be visited in the three palaces of the Musei di Strada, where you’ll find masterpieces by Rubens, along with many other local artists.

Enjoy 360-degree panoramic views from the top deck; take a stroll along the elegant Via Garibaldi, located in the cultural center of Genoa and lined with grand buildings and fine stores. By the rejuvenated Porto Antico you’ll find a number of attractions suitable for the entire family, including the aquarium.

Buses run daily, every 30 minutes until early evening where you can take some time to discover Genoa’s active nightlife scene.

You’ll enjoy multilingual commentary on the bus, making it an ideal way to take in Genoa’s best attractions in a convenient, comfortable and fun way.
