Additional Location Information

"The attic on the sea" is located in the nineteenth century area of the historic center of Genoa. The renovation of the apartment was completed in December 2012 and has recovered the original characteristics of the home (brick and exposed beams, slate steps, window sills and shelves) to combine it with the most advanced comforts of a modern home.
The building, in good condition, dating from around 1875, is located on one of the most typical "creuze" Genoese: pedestrian streets paved with bricks from the sea leading to the uptown of the city. The neighborhood is incredibly peaceful and quiet despite being close to the heart of the city.
The loft is on the seventh floor (elevator to the sixth) and from its windows you can enjoy a unique view of the entire city, the harbor, the Lanterna (Lighthouse) and the sea until the infinite. The exposure is south for the main bedroom, lounge and kitchen, north for the other rooms (a small three-beds bedroom, bath and dressing room). On the north side you have access from the living room to a large and livable terrace for breakfasts, dinners and relaxation.
The house can be reached by car but there are traffic restrictions in the area. As you reach Genoa by car we recommend you to reserve a parking (available just near the station) and forget it the whole time of your stay. In fact, the city center with its museums, monuments, the Old Port, the Aquarium and the many other places to visit are all within walking distance in 15 minutes or less.
Genova Piazza Principe railway station is just at the foot of our "creuza" and can be reached in 5 minutes for quick links to all the places in the Riviere of Ponente and Levante. From the Old Port (10 minutes walking) boats leave for the most famous tourist resorts of Liguria: Camogli, Portofino and the Cinque Terre. A short metro connects the station to the center in a few minutes. A few meters for the ferry terminal to Corsica and Sardegna and the terminal of the main Mediterranean cruises. The motorway (Genoa Ovest) is 5 minutes from Principe. Cristoforo Colombo airport is at about a quarter of an hour by car, or taxi, and less half an hour by bus.
