Many are the roads that lead to Genoa

By car, train, plane or sea: the city of Genoa remains open for business and leisure and getting ready to welcome you to the upcoming 59th edition of the International Boat Show (19th – 24th September)

 Genoa: traffic and transport updates

Due to the recent tragic collapse of the Morandi bridge, roads in the Western parts of Genoa and routes for travelling to the city from the Western “ponente” coastlinehave been reviewed and changed accordingly. Each solution has been devised by a series of permanent think tanks who, following the recent tragedy, immediately put forward effective measures to make alternative routing plans as smooth as possible. Traffic is being monitored 24 hours a day in view of any further optimisation.

 Piazzale Kennedy 16129 Genoa

  •  By car: 

    If you are travelling from the Western “ponente” coastline, you will have to exit the A10 motorway at the “Genova Aeroporto” junction and follow an urban detour connecting you to the new six-lane Guido Rossa coastal road. (four lanes are already open and operating). From here it is possible to re-enter the motorway at the “Genova Ovest” junction to take the A7 towards Milan or the A12/E80 towards Livorno, La Spezia, Livorno, Florence and Rome.

    Those coming from Turin will have to continue on the A21, beyond the A26 junction, and enter the A7 towards Genoa to exit at “Genova Ovest” or at “Genova Est”.
    No changes at all to the usual route for those arriving at Genoa from Milan: you will exit the A7 motorway at “Genova Ovest” which will give you direct access to the raised Aldo Moro road in order to reach the International Boat Show. Otherwise, it is possible to continue to the “Genova Est” junction to then continue towards the Piazzale Kennedy area, the traditional reference point for visitors coming to see the Boat Show.

    Road traffic from the East travelling on the A12/E80 motorway will have a few options to choose without any changes. From the “Genova Est” junction, it is very easy to reach the International Boat Show area. The “Genova Nervi” junction offers two routes: one which takes Corso Europa and one which takes Corso Italia, via which it is again possible to arrive directly at Piazzale Kennedy.For further information:
