Portofino on April 1

Hi,

We are 2 families with 2 children who will arrive to Genoa by cruise. We are interested to visit Portofino in hours by boat.

Is there any services on April 1? Is sea calm enough in this month?

How we can go to ferry port from city center of Genoa?

Thank you for your consideration

Afternoon boat trip to Portofino only - it is its first day of operation for this year golfoparadiso.it/en/go/green-line/#flights

The cruise terminal is on the edge of the old part of the city centre. You can walk to this easily.

For the new part of the centre with modern shopping, maybe take a bus from near the cruise pier to Piazza de Ferrari. Buy bus tickets at the tourist information office at the cruise terminal, and validate (time/date stamp) them on boarding the bus. Genoa's bus stops are very well labelled with route information for each bus number.

Wow - you found those three (and Genoa) the "same flavor?" Amazing. An Ancient city (Rome), a Renaissance city (Florence), Palermo largely Baroque - I don't see any similarity in any of them, including Genoa - well, I guess we all see things differently.

You could take the train to Santa Marguerita Ligure - which is the seaside town just on the other side of Portofino - it is lovely and then you could pop over to Rapallo and then train back to Genoa - I'm sure you guidebook has info these towns -
