The best tour in a tourist train that you can do in Genoa, with a wonderful explanation in 5 languages. The explanation is provided simultaneously through a multilingual system of the latest generation. A true emotional journey through the history of the city. We were the first, we are the most imitated and we are always the most appreciated. pay attention to the imitations, ask for the tour of Pippo in Genoa, the original.

This is a good way to see Genoa if you're on a flying visit. The audio track was reasonable although it didn't always keep up with where we were.

We started the ride and it was very uncomfortable. Very bumpy ride and STRONG smell of gasoline from the head wagon. The recorded tour guide was nothing special: important things were completely ignored (I'm from Genoa myself, I would have been a better guide). After...More

It's better to do it on foot. City is small. You cannot hop off. City cruise is better value for money.

I really enjoyed taking the little tourist train around Genoa. I was able to get a feel for the layout of the city, much better than just looking at a map.
