Public Transports

 

CITY BUSES, SUBWAY, LIFTS, AND FUNICULARS

The city's public transport service is run by AMT and allows visitors to get around easily thanks to its extensive network connecting the entire city: this complete, integrated system includes buses, an underground, funiculars, lifts, a boat, cogwheel and narrow gauge railways.

Over 140 bus lines winding through the city's streets along the coastline from West to East and inland.

1 underground line linking the area of Rivarolo, in the Polcevera Valley, to the city center, with seven stations that come out onto Genoa's tourist sites 

2 funiculars (Sant'Anna and Zecca-Righi) connecting the center to Genoa's high grounds.

1 rack railway, a historic system dating back to 1901, from Piazza Principe station to the typical neighborhood of Granarolo

10 lifts, rising up the hillsides to connect the center to the hills of Genoa and panoramic points

1 narrow-gauge railway: Genoa – Casella railway, a historic line linking Genoa to Casella, a village in the hinterland, running through superb scenery 

1 boat line - Navebus - which connects Pegli (Western Genoa) to the Porto Antico (city center) by sea. The boat trip to the city center from the west takes just 30 minutes. It is also a way to discover the city from a privileged point of view and avoid traffic.

2 special buses to reach Cristoforo Colombo airport: Volabus, shuttle leaving from Brignole train station, with stops in De Ferrari square and in front of Piazza Principe station; alternatively, you can use the AMT Flybus service between Sestri Ponente train station and the airport.
