So, I got up at 6:00 am., took advantage of the hotel breakfast, and made my way to the airport. I basically took a cab from my hotel to the train station because it was just too early to forge through the mess of snow and cold and for the 13e, it was just better.
I took the shuttle from the central station to the Malpensea airport. There …
Arrived in Genoa last Monday 8th Feb as the ship (Zim Ontario) was originally due in today (10th Feb) and it is expected you are in the port ready to roll so to speak just in case the ship is early. This is a containership that carries passengers, so the priority is containers, not pax! Still, flight booked and hotel sorted to find that the ship …
... so I just had to enjoy the beauty of the morning. Later in the morning Wok and I both had a stroll, watching lots of people walking their dogs, and some early bathers and sun bathers at the beach. I think you could safely say that no Italian woman wears a one piece swimsuit. Regardless of shape, size, or age, they are in their bikinis. That's how they manage to always present tanned skin, no matter how much of it is showing. And the men are the same, in that they wear ...
... we used it. Consequently we asked the man at the front desk for a tea towel, and unless we get really lazy, we'll be washing up in the sink. We found a supermarket and stocked our pantry. If you buy loose fruit there's a number for it on the box and you have to put your fruit or veg. on the scales, punch in the number, and you are automatically supplied with a price sticker. I thought I had it all under control, but I'd got a pineapple, and because it didn't ...
... but the weather wasn't warm enough so her feet were the only things to get wet. Arrived at Santa Margherita and walked around a bit but most of the shops were closed until 4pm so we decided to catch the next ferry back to Rapallo. This is our last night in Italy and we have not been disappointed by the food, sights and the cost of things. Arrrivaderci ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Hotel Metropoli Genoa
When we arrived in Genova, after the long trip, we were exhausted, but the hotel staff was there to welcome us and give all the help we needed. We sat and rest in one of the lounges located by the ground floor and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere drinking a nice cappuccino.
What a beautiful experience!
We are a couple and we stayed at this hotel for a few days. The check-in was very fast and the staff very helpful. They gave us maps and infos about the city without even asking! We felt like we were home and even in the room everything was so clean and tidy!
The position of the hotel is absolutely central and we did not have any problem to get around and visit all the monuments and museums.
I was delighted with our hotel in Genoa. Hotel Metropoli has been recently renovated, and you can tell by the beautifully decorated and comfortable rooms. The lobby is very nice too. You cannot beat the location, in the center of the historic area, and walking distance to many places. The staff was very friendly and even allowed us a very late checkout. They also held our luggage for the day while we explored the town, prior to our departure from Genoa. Do yourself a favor and just take a leisurely walk along the many streets. They are so charming and interesting.
We stayed for one night at this hotel in June 2004. When we arrived, the receptionist told us that the hotel did not have a parking space but there was paid parking nearby. Since we arrived on Sunday afternoon, she suggested us to park on a street a few blocks away which was free on Sunday until 8 am Monday morning.
