About Franca Traverso
Hi I'm Franca I am an airline crew and I live between Genoa and London. I love my job that allows me to visit different counntries and explore their cultures. Travelling has always been a part of my life and one of my greatest passions. On these occasions I have come to know and appreciate the different ways of hosting and welcoming guests all over the world.
Why Franca Traverso chose Genoa
I decided to start this new experience to share the beauty and the culture of my city . I hope that thanks to my suite at the old harbour and to my hospitality, Genoa can get into your heart as it is in mine.
What makes this Apartment unique
What I loved when I first saw the flat was that I had the impression of entering a luxury cruise ship suite, the dock and the water just beneath me made feel like being on holiday The property is ideally located in a very quiet and safe area, whilst at the same time at the center of the most interesting cultural and touristic activities of the city.

What more could you ask for!
This apartment - only two rooms (bathroom and kitchen/bedroom - separated by a half wall with glass sliders on top) and a corridor - is wonderful. The main room is well lit by a large window, which has a shutter that can be dropped into place at night. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen has everything one might need to cook with, with a table for 2 as well. A range of teabags and coffee pods were provided. The bathroom is palatial - a large shower, with heated towel rail - and a washing machine. Body wash, shampoo and conditioner were provided and the bath sheets, warmed on the towel rail were a real luxury. The one negative for me was that very large hand basin (built like this to accommodate the washing machine underneath); it didn't allow me to get close enough to the mirror to do my make-up under a light. However, the bathroom sliding door is mirrored on the outside. The 'corridor' has a square upholstered seat and two small tables that can be used to put open luggage on. It's new, modern, clean and comfortable - and on a wharf in the Porto Antico of Genova - a city built around the sea! It's a 15-minute walk for Piazza Principe station - relatively easy, as it's all down hill, but depending on your direction source, there may be some steps. My suggestion is to take Via Balbi all the way to the Annunziata Church and turn right, walking to the set of lights at the bottom. If you cross here, the apartment building is right in front. Renzo met us at the 'Il Gelato", pointed out the supermarket and took us to the apartment. He explained how things worked, asked that we dispose of our rubbish in the communal bins, and then left us. Because we were staying here during New Year, they very kindly provided us with some 'extras' to help us celebrate. There's a little restaurant 'Il Brigantino" on wharf level of the building, which was recommended for lunch - it was delicious and very reasonable. This is a great place to stay in Genova. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Genova, and having this apartment to come home to every night was a definite bonus.
Two days in Genova
Modern, very well equipped appartment fits very well for two persons. The location is perfect. The hosts booked a parking place for us. Everything was very good, thank you very much, Renzo and Franca.
Современная, очень хорошо оборудованная квартира, хорошо подходит для двух гостей, можно и втроем. Расположена прямо в море, на пирсе, рядом с Аквариумом, Галеоном, морским музеем. Хозяева забронировали место на парковке, что всегда проблема в Генуе. Все было здорово, спасибо Ренцо и Франка.
Pretty apartment with a nice few at the harbor.
The apartment was nice for two people. Everything was very clean. The kithen and the bathroom were very modern, with a oven, microwave and dishwasher as well. There were big windows that you can open, so you have a nice view at everything that's going on at the square and also at the harbor.
There is a little supermarket and bakkery at the square as well!
The city centre is at a walking distance with all kind of restaurants and shops.
Genua is located very central so you can drive to other cities or villages as well.
We had a great time at Genua and at the apartment!
