It rained in the morning so I couldn't see it properly, but I saw many places well in the afternoon and was tired of the guide and the drive.

We arrived in Genoa by train and right when we left the Príncipe station there was the bus stop...both lines pass through very interesting areas.

Good route and information. Sadly out of everyone control, the weather was not the best to explore all the great things of the area.

Very good number of busses. No issues waiting. All on time and audio was good

The tour made us discover a different Genoa. Excellent guide
