We could not be more impressed with the hospitality of our hosts. And while you should expect the apartment to be small (the ceilings, in particular, are a bit low where the old wooden supports are), you cannot beat the amazing location. You are very centrally located a short walk away from everything in the city center, it is a truly lovely spot.
A quick tip: if you're looking for a great, inexpensive local restaurant, try Trattoria da Maria. I was really impressed by the quality of the food, and the price, plus the dishes are almost all typical from the Liguria region.
There is a long list of good things about this apartment. It is an excellent choice! Giorgio, Linda and Cristina are fluent in Italian, Spanish and English. The apartment has been entirely renovated, furnished with good taste, and new appliances. You will find literally everything to feel at home.
The apartment is strategically located in Carignano neighborhood: easy access southbound to the Corso Italia – a lovely 4 km passeggiata next to the Mediterranean sea with coffee shops, restaurants and disco bars. North eastbound to via XX Settembre there are nice shops and at the Genova Brignole train station you can take a short trip to visit the Nervi parks and valleys. North westbound, you can visit Piazza Di Ferrari and Porto Antico. From here, there are short ferry tours along the Golfo Paradiso.
I love to walk and jog, so everything was at walking distance from Giorgio’s apartment. It is right in the center of the city. If you don’t like to walk, the bus stop is at less than 100 m away. Ah, no train or bus ticket?... No hassle !...Giorgio left a booklet of 10 tickets in the kitchen for you.
Genova has a lot to offer, spend at least a week !
