Introduction

Genoa always stands in the shadow of the "great" Italian attractions such as Rome, Milan, Venice and Florence. Yet, Genoa is worth a visit: it is a beautiful historic city that attracts more and more tourists. Did you know that Genoa has the largest historic city center in Europe? Wander through the streets and alleys (caruggi) which recall the time when Genoa was the most important port in the Mediterranean. Furthermore, the city is an excellent base for excursions to its surroundings: to the Italian Rivièra or the Cinque Terre: five picturesque towns on a rugged coastline, surrounded by vineyard terraces.

Population

The city has a population of more than 600,000.

Location

Genoa is located in the north west of Italy on the Ligurian Sea. De city stretches along a relatively narrow coastal strip of about thirty kilometers.

Economy

The port is the mainstay of the local economy. It is Italy's largest port for both freight and passenger transport. More than three million people arrive in Genoa on a cruise ship annually. Port-related are the shipbuilding, iron and steel and chemical industries. The importance of these heavy industries is steadily decreasing, financial services are becoming a more important factor. More and more tourists discover the city and therefore this is also a fast growing sector.

Airports

The airport is located on an artificial peninsula more than seven km west of Genoa. Cristoforo Colombo Airport is easily accessible by rental car: the airport is right next to the motorway A10 (Genoa – Ventimiglio). The exit to the airport is clearly indicated.

Public Transport

Genoa has good public bus services, though you should not trust the timetables at the bus stops too much. In the historic center the bus only stops at a few main squares and streets (Piazza Acquaverde, Piazza della Nunziata, Largo Zecca, Piazza Corvetto and Piazza Caricamento). Furthermore, there is a short underground line between the Piazza de Ferrari and Certosa. There is a special bus for tourists – Girocittà – between the main attractions.

Traffic and Parking

The old town is free of traffic. Except for that Genoa is a busy city with many one-way streets and sometimes winding roads. Also, finding a parking space in the center is not always easy. In the vicinity of the port there are some large parking garages. You can also park your rental car at the large parking lot at the Piazza della Vittoria and travel to the center by public transport.

Hotels

The city has a wide range of accommodations, varying from youth hostels to guesthouses and luxury hotels. Furthermore, there are several campsites and summer homes nearby. Genoa is visited increasingly by tourists and as it is an important business center, it attracts many business travelers throughout the year. We therefore recommend you to book your hotel room in Genoa well in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
