WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
We proudly provided our services to:
Genoa is the capital of Italy's Liguria region and the sixth largest city in the country. In 2015, its population within the administrative boundaries of the city counted 594,733 people. In the 2011 Italian census, the province of Genoa, which became the Genoa Metropolitan City in 2015, had 855,834 inhabitants. More than 1.5 million people live in the metropolitan area that stretches along the Italian Riviera.
Located in the Gulf of Genoa on the Ligurian Sea, Genoa has historically been one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean: it is currently the busiest port in Italy and the Mediterranean, and the 12th busiest in the European Union.
For more than seven centuries, from the 11th century to 1797, Genoa was the capital of one of the most powerful maritime republics. Especially from the 12th to the 15th centuries, the city played a leading role in European trade, becoming one of the continent's largest maritime powers and considered one of the richest cities in the world. It was also called la Superba ("The Proud Man") by Petrarch for its majesty on the sea and impressive landmark.
The city has been home to large shipyards and steel mills since the 19th century, and its sound financial sector dates back to the Middle Ages. Founded in 1407, the Bank of St. George is the oldest known state-owned depository bank in the world and has played a major role in the city's prosperity since the mid-15th century.
Genoa's historic center, also known as the Old Town, is one of the largest and most densely populated cities in Europe. Part of it was also inscribed on the World Heritage List (UNESCO) in 2006. Genoa's historic city center is also known for its narrow streets and lanes, called locally as "caruggi".
Genoa is also home to the University of Genoa, which dates back to the 15th century when it was known as the Genoese Athena. The city's rich cultural history in art, music and food made it the European Capital of Culture in 2004. It is the birthplace of Guglielmo Embriaco, Christopher Columbus, Andrea Doria, Niccolò Paganini, Giuseppe Mazzini, Renzo Piano and the founder of Grimaldi House, Grimaldo Canella, among others.
Genoa, the southern corner of the Milan-Turin-Genoa industrial triangle in northwestern Italy, is one of the country's most important economic centers. Many leading Italian companies are based in the city, including Fincantieri, Selex ES, Ansaldo Energia, Ansaldo STS, Edoardo Raffinerie Garrone, Piaggio Aerospace, Mediterranean Shipping Company and Costa Cruises.
How to get from Genoa to Genoa Airport
Buses from the city's two main railway stations - Brignoll and Principe - to Genoa Airport are operated by VOLABUS (ATM). The bus ride takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes and the service is available 7 days a week. Tickets can be purchased from the driver or at at various locations in the city centre, including train stations.
There is no Uber in Genoa, and generally you cannot hail a cab on the street. Therefore, to take a taxi ride from Genoa to Genoa Airport, you will need to walk till the nearest taxi rank or to call any of the local taxi companies. The approximate fare from Genoa downtown to Genoa Airport is about EUR 15 (USD 17). However, if you order your taxi by phone, be ready that it will arrive to you with some euros already shown on taximeter, since the taxi drivers in Italy switch their taximeter on right after receiving an order, no matter where they are. And don't rely on your cabby's English language skills: the most taxi drivers in Italy do not speak foreign languages.
No doubt, this is the most hassle-free option to get from Genoa to Genoa Airport. If you book and pre-pay your transfer in advance - for example, at WelcomeTaxi - our driver will meet you at the doors, will help with your luggage and will safely drive you to the airport or to any other destination.
