Full description
World Heritage-listed Genoa is the capital of Liguria and birthplace of Christopher Columbus. See many of its monuments and its grand 16th and 17th century palaces on the Strade Nueve, on a hop-on hop-on sightseeing tour. With your 24 or 48-hour ticket you’ll see more than just splendid buildings. Genoa presents 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. Explore at your own pace as you 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 3 palaces of the Musei di Strada, where you’ll find masterpieces by Rubens along with many other local and Italian 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 where you can watch dolphins play. Buses run daily every 30 to 60 minutes until early evening, when you can take some time to discover Genoa’s active nightlife scene. The hub of evening activity lies in the historic part of town along the stretch bordered by Piazza Sarzano and Via San Lorenzo. Back on the bus the next day, within the ticket’s 24 or 48-hour period, you can stop off at the Bigo, a replica of a device that was used years ago to offload cargo from the ships. 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.

We visited the Genoa Aquarium on the morning of September 3rd. We had also booked tickets for the Hop-on Hop-off tour in the afternoon. He literally saved us, given the strong storm that otherwise would have blocked us for about 2 hours. On the other hand, on board the red bus we wandered around in the dry streets of Genoa, listening to historical notes and curiosities through earphones. Clearly Genoa is also famous for its carruggi, the Rolli palaces and its views, but getting off the bus at the recommended stops you can see a lot ... and then you go back up. The ticket lasts all day, but can also be purchased for 48 hours. Where it is present I always use this service

Making a reservation and getting tickets on the bus was very simple. The route is long and you get everywhere. Sometimes too far to walk to the next stop and catch the bus there. Parking is a disaster in Genoa. If you go by car take your time. We ended up parking on the street. Hop on Hop off is the best way to see the whole city.

Hop on hop off is a great way to see any city. You can f.i sit through one whole round and then choose where you wanna go off on the next (if you only have a day pass), or if you have a 24/48 hour pass you can go on off everywhere you want. I highly recommend it :-) Genoa is a great city to check out this way.
