The room we are offering is located in an elegant period building in the very heart of town where Piazza De Ferrari meets with the largest historical center in Europe. The apartment in which you will sojourn is located on the top floor, with lift, overlooking the old town roof tops and bell towers.

The space

The building location is unique, as it faces Piazza de Ferrari, the most central and important square in the city, and it neighbours with the quaint streets and alleys of the old town center.
The apartment is on the top floor with a full 360° view and offers the opportunity to enjoy the two realities of the city:
On one side spacious and sunny streets with accessibility to all public transportation services (taxi, bus, metro). On the other, the magic of old town multiethnic melting pot.
The neighborood caters to all tastes, teeming with  all sorts of bars (aperitif, snack, and coffee bars), ice cream parlours, pastry shops, pizzerias and typical Italian trattorie, restaurants of all sorts (including chinese, sushi, arab and other various ethnic ones), and entertainment clubs….resulting in a unique movida.
Situated very near to us are some of the main theatres, with special mention, the Carlo Felice Opera Theatre, visibile from our windows. We also have a view on some other buildings of importance and beauty like the Palazzo Ducale(Doge’s Palace), the Expo and the old port,(within  short walking distance), the main shopping streets like Via Roma, Galleria Mazzini and Via XX Settembre, the lovely historical streets like via Garibaldi, and monuments like the house of Columbus, the old Churches, among which San Lorenzos’ Cathedral, (a short walk away), and the Church del Gesu’, (all located in the old centre).
The buildings foundations and first floors, in which the apartment is located, dates back to the middle ages while the top floors date back to the early 800’s.  The actual apartment has been designed and restored by our mother, who is an architect.

Guest access

Guests have access to their room, bathroom and terrace: the bathroom and the terrace are directly accessibile from the bedroom. 

Interaction with guests

We will do everything possibile to be of help during our guests stay.

Other things to note

-We have chosen not to offer a “proper”breakfast due to the wide variety of cafes and breakfast nooks in the area. We do however have an espresso coffee machine, which makes an excellent coffee, located in the living room.  There are also a small fridge and a small electric kettle with the necessary supplies to prepare a cup of tea, camomile, or instant coffee directly in the bedroom.
-The room has independent climate control heating and a ceiling fan.
- In the same apartment we rent also another bedroom with its exclusive bathroom. Both rooms can be locked by keys.

- Foreign guests are asked to send a photo of their identity card or passport to this e-mail address: (EMAIL HIDDEN) This request is motivate by the fact that in Italy there is a new antiterrorism law which forces hosts to communicate to the local police the presence of every foreign guest staying in their house; if hosts don't do the communication they get fined.
- Also smokers can be welcome in our home if they smoke exclusively on the terrace, in respect of our non-smoking guests
- Guests are asked to take out the rubbish when the bags in their room or in their bathroom are full.
- Breakfast is neither included nor served, guests can use the little fridge inside the room or prepare their coffee with the espresso machine in the dinette or other drinks (tea, camomile, powder coffee) with the kettle in their room.

The location of this apartment is great! In the heart of Genoa! You definitely will not get lost, since you live practically on the area of Ferrari. Since you live in the center, there is everything. what you need: shops, cafe, markets, etc. ... Two railway stations are in walking distance - 15 minutes. A cozy room with everything you need and a very nice balcony with a wonderfu view of the city! It was a great experience! The hosts cordially greeted us and even explained in Russian with the help of a friend - it's very cute!

Cute yet small room with a beautiful balcony in the heart of historic genova. Lots of good restaurants near by and not far from the aquarium. Really enjoyed our stay there. :)

Marta and Alessandra are very welcoming and make you feel at home in their gorgeous flat. The room is beautiful, even better than it looks in the pictures. The location is fantastic, only 2 minutes from Piazza de Ferrari and 5 minutes from the Old Port. The balcony is lovely in the evenings, and there are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. A fantastic experience, I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Genoa for a couple of days.

Perfect place in the heart of the city! For our weekend in Genoa we had everything we needed at Marta and Alessandra's place :) A clean room with everything you need and super for couple of days with 2 persons. Also we enjoyed the most beautiful view & the cutest balcony! Everything that we wanted to do in the city was on a walking distance from our place. Also arrival and checking out went very smoothly, we were really taken care of during the whole stay:) Highly recommend this for your stay in Genoa!!

Ciao, siamo due sorelle e siamo molto contente di essere entrate a far parte della community di Airbnb!
Siamo presenti con due proposte diverse, entrambe legate alla nostra vita:
- a Genova, nel cuore pulsante della città, mettiamo a disposizione due camere in quella che è stata la casa in cui abbiamo vissuto per molti anni con i nostri genitori, all'epoca dell'Università, e dove nostra madre vive ancora, soprattutto nel periodo invernale;
- nella Valle Pesio, offriamo una dépendance all'interno di una proprietà, il cui ampio terreno è ricco di fiori, piante ed alberi da frutta, dove trascorriamo da sempre le nostre vacanze estive e invernali e dove la nostra cara mamma si trasferisce nel periodo estivo.
A tutti il nostro più caro benvenuto!
Hi, we are two sisters and we are very happy to be part of the airbnb community!
We offer you two very different options, both related to our lives:
-  in the heart of Genova we have two rooms available in the house in which we lived in up to our years at university and in which our mother still lives (mainly in the winter season);
-  in the Pesio Valley (Piedmont region, Cuneo province) within a vast property, we have a dependance surrounded by a variety of flowers and fruit trees, where we have always spent our summer and winter holidays and where our dear mother lives in the summer months.
We extend to you our warmest welcome!
