Find accommodation near Genoa's bustling Old Port to be just steps away from the city's major attractions. Spruced up by star architect Renzo Piano in 1992, Porto Antico is crammed with big-hitter attractions, including the Bigo Lift, the Aquarium of Genoa, the Galata Maritime Museum, the Biosphere and Galeone Neptune – a pirate ship.
Within walking distance of Genoa's ferry and cruise ship terminal, Porto Antico is the place to go for waterfront restaurants, cafes, hip bars and galleries. And just a short stroll from Porto Antico is Genoa's atmospheric historic quarter, a warren of narrow laneways lined with pavement cafes, restaurants and shops.
If you want to splash out on an unforgettable hotel stay, much of Genoa's luxury accommodation is near Porto Antico, including its boutique and five-star hotels. But if you’re keeping cost down, save money by booking a room at one of Porto Antico’s budget-friendly hotels or guesthouses.
After bombing during World War II, Porto Antico was brought back to life in 1992 for the 500th anniversary celebrations of Genoese navigator Christopher Columbus's discovery of the New World. Architect Renzo Piano re-energised the area with walkways and plazas, transforming warehouses into restaurants, museums and shops.
Based in Porto Antico, the Galata Museo del Mare is the Mediterranean's largest sea museum, with four floors of nautical artefacts and interactive exhibits. Popular with families, the museum’s stand-out exhibits include a reconstruction of a 17th-century galley ship and a real submarine, which is moored in the port. You can also wander through the section dedicated to Columbus.
Porto Antico is also home to Italy's largest aquarium, the Aquarium of Genoa, which has a wealth of marine life, including sharks, dolphins, seals, penguins, manatees and more. One of the area's star attractions is the Bigo Lift, a panoramic elevator that offers 360-degree views of the coast from high above the city.
Whether you're stay in Genoa is with family, friends or your partner, Porto Antico is a top spot to base yourself if you want to be steps away from major sightseeing attractions.
