How to Get to Liguria

Tips on how to reach wine tastings and tours in Liguria by different means of transportation.

Genoa Cristoforo Colombo Airport (GOA) is the major airport in Liguria serving the capital Genoa. There are several daily flights from major European cities such as Rome, London, Munich, Paris, and Madrid. From the airport, it is easy to rent a car or take a shuttle Volabus to the city center. You can take some time to explore the city and then go to the countryside and experience wine tastings and tours in Liguria.

Liguria is well connected to the rest of Italy, especially to the Northern Italian regions. Here are some suggestions of how to reach main cities, from where you can easily reach the locations of wine tastings and tours in Liguria.

  • Coming from Milan, you can reach Genoa via the A7-E62 traveling 145 km. Take precaution through the last part, from Serravalle to Genoa which is very twisty.
  • You can also take an alternative route, turning off the A7 near Tortona and drive on the A26/A7, following Genova, Ventimiglia, Savona, Voltri which is 20km longer but certainly a safer and more comfortable trip.
  • From Turin, you can drive via A6/E717 to Savona and then go to Genoa following the beautiful, but twisty A10 coast highway, or follow the Genova Piacenza indications you’ll find on the ring road heading south which offers fewer sightseeing opportunities.
  • From Tuscany, you can drive via A12 from Rosignano to Genoa. From November 1 to March 31 you must have snow chains on board between the gates of Carrodano and Sestri Levante, even though snow is seldom a problem here. 

It is easy to travel to Genoa, the capital of Liguria, by train from Milan, Turin, Rome, Florence, and many other cities of Italy. There is also a direct train connecting with Nice.

There are two main train stations in Genoa:

  • Brignole serves most local routes. You can take a train from Genoa Brignole to Albenga, where you will be able to visit some of the best wineries and experience wine tastings and tours in Liguria.
  • Principe serves local and long-distance trains, and many trains from Milan and beyond will only stop at this station.
