Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Genoa, Italy your home away from home

Genoa (or Genova as it is in Italian) is a province of Northern Italy on the Ligurian Coast. The province is known to have some of the finest medieval monuments in the whole of Europe, and whatever you end up doing for entertainment in Genoa; you will be surrounded by a charming medieval atmosphere. There is an undeniable historic and artistic heritage in Genoa which easily rivals the more famous Italian cities like Venice and Florence. Despite its delightful atmosphere, glorious surroundings and excellent coastline, Genoa accommodation is never subject to large tourist crowds meaning you can enjoy your holiday in peace.

Genoa; Things to do on holiday in Genoa, Italy

Genoa has a long naval history, with the provincial capital, Genoa, being one of the most important cities in Italy’s naval history. Throughout the province are a host of top class museums telling the story of Genoa, as well as many monuments dating back throughout the centuries. The city of Genoa is particularly valuable to tourists, packed with world class restaurants, informative and fun museums and a huge number of attractions, things to do and shopping streets.

The Genoa countryside is a maze of cycle paths and walking trails, both following the rugged coastline and into the hilly interior of the province. The Aveto Natural Regional Park which falls into the Province of Genoa covers some of the most beautiful parts of the Ligurian Apennines as well as three rocky valleys, perfect for hiking, cycling and nature sightings. The countryside of Genoa is very mountainous and unspoilt which provides the ideal habitat for many animals and birds. There are many magnificent natural parks in the area which provide endless entertainment in Genoa for those with a love of the great outdoors.

As word of the glorious coastline was leaked to the tourist industry, locals knew that things in Genoa would never be the same! The whole coastline consists of beautiful rocky coves where the mountains drop into the sea, with little sand beaches providing a perfect place to set down your towel, relax in the sun and have a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean.

Places to visit on holiday in Genoa, Italy

The provincial capital of Genoa Province, Genoa, rivals any medieval city in the whole of Europe. Often missed by the tourist crowds, the city of Genoa is a beautiful place to take Genoa accommodation, far from the tourist hoards yet awash with medieval marvels which helped the city rise to become the European Capital of Culture for many years. The Sea and Navigational Museum down by the docks is one of the most popular things in Genoa to visit, although the delightful shopping streets which cross the new part of the town and the many charming churches (especially the simply stunning San Lorenzo Church) and monuments attract quite a crowd.

Weather in Genoa, Italy

Genoa has four distinct seasons. In the most popular summer months (July and August), average temperatures soar to around 30°C, with daily temperatures reaching a maximum of around 38°C. The spring and autumn periods are remarkably dry, with the majority of rain falling between November and December. In winter, temperatures rarely fall below 5°C, but if you travel in winter to Genoa, things to keep you warm in the evenings are essential.

Travel to Genoa, Italy

British Airways and RyanAir both provide direct cheap flights to Genoa Airport (GOA) from London, which makes reaching your Genoa accommodation very easy. If leaving fromLondonis not convenient from home, Genoa is well connected to Milan Airport (MXP) which receives many cheap flights from the UK.

Liguria, Italy

From the little villages of the Cinque Terre to the romantic Portofino or the beautiful flowers of Sanremo, Liguria is a land of fascinating contrast.

Genova, its capitol, is the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, and was a powerful coastal town until the 6th century A.D., and has the European biggest and oldest pedestrian centre. Liguria is well known for the food, pesto a basilicum sauce that you can eat only here, ravioli, troffie, and very good seafood.

We are very close to Tuscany and the French Riviera.

The Tigullio Gulf is very nice, it has a beautiful 18 hole golf course in Rapallo, there are many boat trip to Cinque Terre San Fruttuoso, Camogli.

Liguria is easy to reach, the closest international airports are Malpensa in Milano, Pisa andNice in France. Genova has an airport but is for national and inter-European flights.

I am sure that all tourists can enjoy this not so well known part of Italy.

Lovely apartment with a fabulous view

5 of 5
We stayed for 8 nights towards the end of September and enjoyed lovely sunny weather - average 23-25 degrees. The apartment is spacious and is in a quiet area.The view of the sea and the hills and the town from the lounge and the large terrace is so good. It is really worth the walk up the steep hill - and a good way of feeling virtuous that you have at least done a bit of exercise after all those pizzas with Gorgonzola! DOnatella and her son very kindly picked us up from the train station on arrival and also took us back to the station when we left. We liked Sestri very much - particularly the Bay of Silence beach and the clear sea which was certainly warm enough for swimming every day. We would definitely recommend staying here and plan to come back to Sestri.

excellent location

5 of 5
Excellent location on seafront, balcony with great view, just the place for a morning coffee. Close to station with frequent trains to the Cinque Terre and town centre amenities about 10 minutes walk away along the pleasant promenade. Plenty of eating places to choose from, some within 100 metres. (Free) bathing beach immediately opposite with two beach bar/cafes, friendly welcome and reasonable prices. Worth mentioning that some aspects of the property are a little tired looking, cracked and chipped crockery for example but that overall it is a well equipped, comfortable and pleasant apartment in an excellent location.
