Genoa was once the maritime capital of the world and is one of the most sought-after yacht destinations. The city is a beacon of Italian culture and docking in this historic location allows you to immerse yourself in the enchanting story of Genoa’s past. Home to picturesque beaches and a stunning coastline, Genoa is an ideal location for anyone travelling by superyacht.

Porto Antico is Genoa’s central marina, was the first and the most renowned port in Italy, originating in the 11th century. It plays a pivotal role in the city’s maritime past and has berths for yachts and vessels of different shapes and sizes. Along the waterfront promenade lies the Acquario di Genova, one of Europe’s largest aquariums where you can observe all kinds of marine life and discover more about all creatures from around the world’s many oceans. Alternatively, you can go to the maritime museum, Galata Museo del Mare, and take a deep dive into the legacy of the Genoese Republic. Learn about the early modern maritime nation Genoa used to be. Aside from indulging in Genoa’s rich history, you can visit the luxurious boutiques that fill the streets or sample many of Italy’s gastronomic delights.

Porto Antico is not Genoa’s only marina available to yachts. Located around one mile from Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport, the Marina Genova Aeroporto offers luxury facilities, excellent service and stunning seaside views. This marina is an ideal spot for short-term and long-term visitors. There is also the Marina di Sestri Ponente, only two miles from the airport, which is known for its modern infrastructure and provides easy access to local attractions.

Genoa is also a prime destination for yachts to use as a base whilst they visit other desirable locations along the Italian Riviera. Portofino is only a short sail away and is renowned for colourful buildings and luxurious boutiques along the waterfront. Other popular places to put on your sail list should include Santa Margherita Ligure, a quiet and relaxing town with seaside resorts and luscious gardens, and Cinque Terre, a UNESCO World Heritage site made up of five villages built into rugged cliffs. 

One of the most popular sail routes for yachts is the 5-8 hour journey to San Remo, which is dependent on conditions and the specific vessel.

Both are desirable yacht destinations with unique cultural experiences and breathtaking views highlighting the true natural beauty of the Mediterranean.

When staying in Genoa, you can take a tour through the old town centre and visit the Musei Di Strada Nova to indulge in the city’s long history and learn about fascinating art from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

Inside, you will be taken on an artistic journey through the sixteenth century as you lose yourself in pieces from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

The 5-star Grand Hotel Savoia is the perfect place to stay during your visit as it has luxurious rooms and suites that offer incredible views of the Ligurian Sea. Its in-house restaurant provides the finest Italian cuisine made from locally sourced ingredients and after a meal guests can relax in the indoor spa or swimming pool.

For lovers of fresh seafood, you can try a Michelin-starred experience at Il Marin; enjoy the catch of the day by the waterfront.
