HOW TO REACH GENOA BY CAR, TRAIN OR PLANE
ARRIVING BY CAR
FROM THE WEST
The collapse of the Morandi bridge has forced a revision of traffic arrangements in the west of the city and those arriving from the west – on the A10 from France, Ventimiglia and Savona – must of necessity take the Genoa airport exit and take the city route that leads to the new six-lane Guido Rossa Road, continue along the Lungo Mare Canepa and, using the Sopraelevata Aldo Moro (*), reach the Hempel World Cup Series Village.
FROM THE NORTH (TURIN, MILAN) Those arriving from Turin must continue on the A21, beyond the A26 fork, and join the A7 for Genoa exiting at Genoa West or Genoa East. The same applies to those arriving in Genoa by car from Milan on the A7 motorway: the exit at the Genoa West tollbooth allows direct access to the Sopraelevata Aldo Moro to reach the Hempel World Cup Series Village. Alternatively, they may continue to Genoa East and then drive down directly to the fair area where HWCS is based.
FROM THE EAST AND SOUTH (ROME, FLORENCE, BOLOGNA, LEGHORN, LA SPEZIA) Road traffic arriving from the East on the A12/E80 motorway has several options for reaching the city without route changes respect to the past. From the Genoa East exit it is easy to reach the Hempel World Cup Series area. The Genoa Nervi exit is an alternative, following Corso Europa which also leads directly to the same area.
(*) Important: those using the Genoa West exit are advised that the Sopralevata Aldo Moro leading to the Fair is NOT open to vehicles weighing more than 2.5 tonnes. Vehicles exceeding this limit must use the city route.
ARRIVING BY TRAIN
Genoa has two railway stations, Genoa Brignole and Genoa Principe, and you will arrive at one or the other depending on where you come from. The city is well connected by Regional, Intercity and Eurostar trains with the principal Italian and European cities.
Genoa Brignole station is only 10 minutes on foot from the Fair area.
Train services from and to the west (Ventimiglia and France) operate regularly and in recent months have been improved thanks to an agreement between the Italian railways and the Liguria Region. To know more: http://www.trenitalia/Treni-Regionali.com
