Thanks to its geographical position, the Port of Genoa occupies a strategic position
in the Mediterranean basin, representing a natural gateway to the sea for many European countries.
This makes the Port of Genoa is an important port of arrival and departure for several cruise routes.
Direct cruises sail from the passenger area run by Stazioni Marittime S.p.A.
to major destinations of historical, cultural and visitor interest, stopping at Middle Eastern,
North African, Mediterranean and Atlantic ports.
Genoa is also a point of departure and arrival for cruises to northern Europe and transatlantic cruises
to the Americas.
The Port of Genoa benefits from its favourable position for ferry traffic as well as for cruise traffic.
Numerous ferry services operate all year round from the Stazioni Marittime S.p.A. terminal
to Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, North Africa and Spain.
The logistic position of the passenger area is also particularly favourable, linked among other things directly
to the motorway junction; it is 2 km from Genoa international airport and 500 metres
from the railway station.
In the immediate vicinity are stops on the underground and for buses to the city centre,
which is just a few hundred metres from the Ponte dei Mille Stazione Marittima.
You will admire the pier opposite the sea and the port, the work of man, of inestimable value and of a lot of work, which in vain hit the daily storms. (Francesco Petrarca)
