Liguria's splendid coastal resorts and the main tourist attractions of Genoa can become a great opportunity for children to have fun.
For example, the Trenino Pippo Expò and Pippetto are real fairy-tale trains. They take travellers through the main streets of Genoa, through the narrow alleyways of the old town centre and along the waterfront, comfortably seated in mini carriages on wheels. Departure and arrival from Piazza Caricamento, in front of the Aquarium.
From Genoa's Porto Antico the main tourist destinations of the eastern coast, such as Camogli, Portofino, San Fruttuoso, Porto Venere and the Cinque Terre, can be reached by sea with the numerous boats. The trip allows a suggestive view of the Ligurian coast and a relaxing moment for the whole family.
It is also possible, in the summer, to go on night excursions or to set sail in search of dolphins and fin whales that are often seen emerging from the waters of the Ligurian Sea: a unique experience.
