Expedia car hire in Genoa comes with No Hidden Fees

Hire a Car in Genoa

Explore beyond Genoa by hiring a car with Expedia, enabling you to really explore Liguria, the coastal region of north-western Italy, where Genoa is the capital. If you're after some beach action, head to the coast.

Just a 40-minute drive from Genoa's Cristoforo Colombo airport, where you can rent a car, must-see coastal resorts include glamorous Portofino, where film stars and jet-setters like to holiday, and the more down-to-earth Santa Margherita Ligure, which is equally pretty but not as expensive.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, the five Medieval fishing villages of the Cinque Terre are a 90-minute drive from Genoa airport. Clinging to steep terraces on the rugged coast, these seaside villages are a paradise of historic streets and pastel-coloured buildings. Park up and take a stroll!

Cruise along highway E80 or the SS1coast road, for sweeping views of the sea. Stop along the way to explore the coast's seaside resorts and charming villages.

Stop off in Savona for a wander around its historic centre, ancient monuments and gorgeous harbour. The take in the Medieval town of Alassio, where you'll find sandy beaches and luxury boutiques.

Another enjoyable coastal drive in your hire car is along the Italian Riviera between Genoa and La Spezia, dotted with elegant resorts, including Portofino with its seafood restaurants and eye-popping ocean views.
