Public Transports


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: Genova – 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. 

1 bus to reach Cristoforo Colombo airport,  Airlink shuttle service between Sestri Ponente train station and the airport. 


Volabus is the AMT service that connects the airport to Genova Brignole and Genova Piazza Principe railway stations, passing through the city centre. In about 30 minutes, it is possible to reach the Genoese airport or the city centre. For further information on timetables and fares, please check the following link
