Genoa airport is situated on an artificial peninsula just four and a half miles from central Genoa. A bus running every 30 minutes connects the airport with Genoa’s central Principe railway station, with a journey time of 30 minutes. Genoa is served by a good bus network and a single metro line. An unusual feature of the city’s public transport are the three funiculars and 10 vertical lifts that scale the city’s steep hills.
Genoa airport offers a small but distinctly Italian range of bars, restaurants and shops, including branches of local fashion store Giglio Bagnara, and Italian naval-inspired sportswear brand, Marina Militare. A selection of duty free goods is also available.
