There’s nothing better than sitting on its beach eating fried seafood cones. You must come here while visiting Genova. No matter the damages of the costal storm, boccadasse is and will always be one of the most beautiful places on earth

My girlfriend and I spent the day at the village. The sea was lovely. There are plenty of places to eat. We had the speciality fried fish that we enjoyed.

There were a lot of people sitting around at restaurants or eating gelato. There's a church if you go up the stairs and the view is nice. Everything is lovely if you like sight seeing, relaxing by the ocean and eating gelato. There's only one...More

Boccadasse is an hour's walk along the coastal path Corso Italia from Genoa; a path lined with cafes and beach bars. It's a bit of a trek but worth the walk. The village is every bit as stunning in person as the photographs suggest. Attractive...More
