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.

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.

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.

The drop out of the front door is to be remembered. There was a stair lift being installed when we were there. Anna who let us in was helpful and took us to a parking space where we could leave the car for 3 days for free, and she didn't mind what time we left the apartment which was a bonus. Communication after payment was frustrating but on the day of arrival all went well. The view from the balcony is fab and the location is very central. We didn't find it noisy at all but we weren't there at the weekend. The apartment would benefit from a small table on the balcony, a new mattress on the top bunk bed as it was so sunk we couldn't use it, thankfully we could utilise the sofa bed, also a bit more kitchen equipment would be good. I agree with a previous review about the deposit, we did get ours back one week after our departure but it was a worry. If you plan to do any washing the machine is a top loader and is quite difficult to open, after an extra spin the washing was still dripping wet but maybe we had done something wrong, you hang your washing on a line on the back wall over the street! Recommend a boat trip to Portofino, really stunning. Despite a few minor faults I would recommend this apartment, it's a great spot.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment is clean, somewhat minimally furnished, and reasonably spacious for 2 or 4 people. The two shower rooms are an excellent feature. The air conditioning is very efficient and the T.V./stereo systems are good quality. The outside patio is spacious, reasonably private and excellent for eating out and a BBQ with plenty of outside furniture. The kitchen is quite well equipped although a microwave oven would be a very useful addition. One disadvantage of the apartment is the fact that being a lower ground floor apartment there are two flights of stairs to descend from the entrance lobby which is itself up one flight of steps from the street. This is no problem for fit adults but may be a disadvantage for more elderly people with luggage or shopping and mothers with push chairs. The huge advantage of the apartment is its location just a few metres from the main shopping area but still in a lovely quiet residential street. The sea front with beaches, promenade ,ferry terminal, information office,bus stops and restaurants is only 200 metres away and the train station is only a short walk away also. There is no need to have a car to get around. Santa Margherita itself is delighful ,quite the best resort in the area and there are many places of interest to visit using all of the transport facilties available. All in all the apartment and Santa Margherita offer an ideal holiday experience.
