  • 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.
