Getting To Genova Airport

Genoa is beautifully located at the Mediterranean coast with the natural harbour of the Gulf of Paradiso having launched many a famous ship and mariner’s career, not least of all Cristopher Columbus, who was reputedly born in the city and whose name the airport bears.

Getting to Genova Airport is easy by car, train and coach as well as by local bus services, which operate shuttle services between the city centre, the main train stations and the airport.

There is no train station at Genova Airport but the VOLABUS, I24 and Rapid Bus services take passengers to the Principe and Brignole train stations in Genoa, a trip that takes between 30 to 40 minutes. Getting to Genoa Airport by taxi is not very expensive, as the airport is located just 7 km from the city, making it a short and inexpensive journey from the city centre hotels. Passengers will be dropped off just outside the terminal building, whether they travel by bus or taxi.

Principe train station is located near the Palazzo del Principe on the Piazza Acquaverde in Geno city centre. An underground station at Principe enables passengers to take underground trains to Genoa Sampeirdarena and Brignole train stations.

Brignole train station is Genoa’s main railway station and it is located on Piazza Verdi in the city centre. From here passengers have connections to Rome, Turin or Milan as well as many other Italian cities and towns.

Major motorway networks link Genoa Airport with the Piedmont and Lombardy regions as well as the Alps (motorway A10/E25). The motorway A12/E80 lies to the north of Genoa and intersects with the A7/E80, which leads to the airport by going into a southerly direction and then taking the A10 towards the west, where an exit road will take drivers to the signposted stretch of road that leads to Cornigliano and Genoa Airport.

Getting to Genoa Airport from major Italian cities doesn’t take that long, since the airport is only 140 km from Milan, 105 km from La Spezia and 170 km from Turin. A little further away, 210 km to be precise, lies Nice and Florence is some 225 km distance from the airport. There are several major car hire companies that provide car rental at the airport and hiring a car for a few days to explore the Liguria region as well as the aforementioned cities is easy with such an excellent motorway network.

From the city centre of Genoa motorists should take head into a westerly direction on Strada Aldo Moro (the SS1). The A7 and A10 also lead to the airport.

There are ample parking facilities at the airport, both short and long-term. Drivers just wishing to drop off passengers will not be charged for the first 30 minutes of parking in the drop off parking areas, after which only a very small fee applies for the first 60 minutes.

Within the arrivals hall there is a tourist information stand, where visitors to Genoa Airport can make enquiries how best to travel between their final holiday destination and the airport. Getting to Genova Airport from other major cities in Italy is also easy with many budget airlines offering domestic flights which are cheap and make travelling around Italy even quicker.
