Reach Liguria by car, plane or train

Travel information for Liguria

Make up your mind how you will travel either by private car, rental car, plane, train or by bus

A plane is flying to Liguria

Depending on the location of your rented vacation villa, your car should be able to take you to your holiday home

One is able to discover a lot without cars in Liguria, traveling by plane, shuttle bus from the airport or the railway works perfectly if you would like to escape the big holiday traffic jam and to avoid selecting a remote House in the mountains. Whoever would still want to be mobile can rent a car in advance.

There is a shuttle bus which travels between the Nizza and the Genova airports and passes all the major towns of the coast between the two Airports. There is also a public transport bus which can sometimes take you further if you have to travel short distances in the next mountain village.

Small mountain roads, many curves, paths through olive groves - small cars and jeeps are on demand

Whoever does not choose his vacation villa in a large town on the coastal road, is recommended to accurately inquire for the journey to the holiday accommodation. There are steep and narrow mountain roads even in the coastal areas due to the geographical conditions in Liguria. Be sure of the size of the car as you hire one and possibly think about parking (our parking yard mark is P)

A small car Fiat in Liguria

Smaller cars with a lot of ground clearance facilitate excursions to the mountainous hinterland, so as to survive the journeys to delicious restaurants, tourist attractions and great hiking trails free of damage. Mountain roads generally applly to motorists: The uphill vehicle has the right of way. Motorists must take special care of riders who sometimes like to squeeze simultaneously past one to the left or the right.

Car rental

We recommend a rental car from the airport to your holiday destination. Almost all major German car rental companies have rental locations in Nice and Genoa. It is always advisable when booking a flight, where possible to make reservations for a rental car or book one. This guarantees on the one hand, the availability of the car (and if in doubt, get a "better" car for the same price), besides it is usually cheaper. Also remember that in Italy a small car is better than a bigger one, because of the partial narrow streets.

Here is a list of car rental locations in Nice and Genoa and Milan:
