Ferries and boats in Liguria

Getting around in Liguria using the ferry is easy since there are frequent links to many places including tourist destinations.
The navebus, run by the company AMT Genova, is a bus service linking the city centre and the port, from Pegli to Piazza Caricamento (near the Aquarium of Genoa). It is a good way to avoid the traffic and travel in comfort using the usual city transport pass.
Companies operating links by sea include:
