Book an Apartment Hotel in Genoa
If you're looking for mid-range accommodation with all the comforts of home, book an apartment hotel in Genoa. A great option for families and groups, apartment hotels usually offer plenty of space with a separate living and dining room area.
From the hip to the historic, apartment hotels usually come with WiFi, flat-screen TVs and coffee makers to ensure you have a comfortable stay in Genoa.
Family Fun in Genoa
If you’re travelling to Genoa with your kids in tow, stay in an apartment hotel to take advantage of the city's family-friendly attractions, many of which can be found in Porto Antico. Families often head to the Aquarium of Genoa to see all its marine life, including sharks, dolphins, penguins, seals, manatees and more. In its dramatic ship-inspired design, the aquarium is the largest of its kind in Italy (and the second largest in Europe).
Also popular with kids is the Neptune, a pirate ship permanently moored in the harbour. A life-size replica of a 17th-century Spanish galleon, the ship was built for Roman Polanski's 1985 movie Pirates and is great for exploring.
Another must-see in Genoa is the Galata Museo del Mare, the Mediterranean's largest maritime museum, with four floors loaded with nautical artefacts. Check out the reconstruction of a 17th-century galley ship and a real submarine which is moored in the port. There's also a fascinating section dedicated to Genoa-born navigator Christopher Columbus.
After a busy day of sightseeing, recharge your batteries in one of Porto Antico's waterfront restaurants, bars or gelato shops.
