My wife Paola and I are thrilled that you are considering our condo for you staying in Genova and will do anything we can to make your stay memorable.

Vittorio Viarengo purchased this condo in 1995

Why Vittorio Viarengo chose World

With many beds, spacious living areas, ample terrace with view, and two bathrooms, this penthouse is the perfect place to enjoy Genoa and its many attractions. The condo features two bathroom and two kitchens. The main kitchen is modern, functional and fully equipped.

You can access the Principe train station for day trips to Portofino, Cinque Terre, Niece, Monte Carlo and Italian riviera through the public elevator just across the street.

Or you can walk to the "Porto Antico" the ancient port of Genoa where you can find the famous Aquarium, shopping, restaurants, movie theatre and other tourist attractions.

What makes this condo unique

Stunning views: the views from the terrace of the harbor, the ancient port, the Ligurian coast all the way to the Maritime Alps are unforgettable. Enjoy a bottle of good wine watching the sun set behind the alps.

Style: the condo was refurnished by my wife who is an architect and it combines modern accents with traditional elements and material from Liguria such as slate stones and wooden beams. It was designed to live in it, so it features all the conveniences you would expect, plus a fully operational kitchen and free coffe :)

Convenient location: Walk across the street to a public elevator that takes you to the train station and walking distance to downtown and tourist attractions.

Car Garage: your own car garage just across the street.

De Albertis Castle: literally walking distance from the museum inside the De Albertis Castle

Clean, beautiful view and VERY helpful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this place. We had a small issue with the lock on the door for the apartment and the owner made sure it was handled very swiftly and even invited us into his own place while the issue was dealt with! Very nice and communicative! Would definitely stay here again!

This was a great property with all we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was as shown in pictures, very nice with all we needed for a great stay. Roberto was very helpful when we arrived giving us bus options to get there as the elevator was out that day, even waiting at the bus stop to show us the way. The terrace view in the pictures is even better than shown. We would definitely stay here again when coming to Genoa. Loved it thanks again

Great Apartment in an Ideal Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. When we arrived in Genoa, we called Roberto and he met us in front of the building. He then gave us an overview of the apartment and explained how everything worked. He was most gracious and accommodating. We felt very welcomed. Our party was comprised of 3 couples and the apartment is more than spacious to accommodate 6 people. Although it is in an older building, there has been extensive remodeling done to make it into a new apartment. The kitchen was fully equipped with a stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher as well as dishes, utensils and cookware. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms well-appointed. Also, the bathrooms were clean and very modern. The apartment location is ideal with a great view of the harbor. The bus stops just steps away from the building entrance. And the Principe Train Station is easily accessible via an elevator that is a 3-minute walk from the building. The elevator goes vertically 80 meters and then moves on a track 235 meters horizontally and comes out steps away from the train station. (I have never seen an elevator like it). There are also taxis and buses at the train station. Overall, this apartment exceeded our expectations. If the opportunity arises, we would stay here again.

Pictures do not do this property justice!

  • 5 of 5

Yes it is a stunning penthouse with terrace and we enjoyed sitting on that terrace overlooking the harbor watching the cruise ships dock in and out. The property was well equipped with all we could have wanted. The kitchen had all amenities and we truly enjoyed the "coffee" as well as the items for breakfast and snacks left by our host. All the rooms were well appointed and comfortable. We were able to use the washing machine and small terrace for drying. The location is residential and quiet at night. Thank for a wonderful stay, if we ever come back to Genova we would love to stay again.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the Genova property! There penthouse was extremely clean and comfortable. We had two adult couples staying for two nights in September and had more than enough room. While home, we spent the majority of the time on the beautiful terrace. The views from any seat were amazing! The harbor was in front of us, a castle to one side and then the hillside houses.

The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of dishes along with a few snacks. Both bathrooms worked great, no issues at all.

Communication before arrival was smooth. All we did was call a few minutes before arrival and we met Roberto in front of the building. He explained how everything worked and gave us suggestions in the area as well.

We walked everywhere from the penthouse. The city was a lot of fun! It was not a super tourist area, which we all loved.

Thank you again for having us! We all agreed, your property was our favorite on our travels through Italy!

Great apartment in Genova

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is just as pictured. Very modern, fully equipped and comfortable. The location is great, being high enough to enjoy the view, but just across the street from the Elevator that gets you down to attractions and restaurants easily. This is the elevator that turns into a train halfway through the trip (described in recent NYTimes travel section) Our 4 yr old called it the choo choo elevator. It's essential to have the garage for parking in Genova-- don't know what we would have done without it. Roberto, who met us there could not have been more gracious and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!
