Autumn and spring are the best times to visit Genoa. Temperatures reach 30°C from June through August, with frequent rain showers from mid-August. Forget rental cars, Genoa’s streets are too narrow for anything bigger than a Vespa. Your feet are your best friends when it comes to reaching most sights, and there’s always the bus or funicular. Buy your multi-purpose 90-minute tickets from tobacconists and newsagents.
