Is a 3 hour stop in Genoa, Italy worth it - what to see

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are doing a 2 day Cinque Terre from Milan on the end of a trip. There are 2 trains that go direct to Cinque Terre 8:10am - 10:58am or 12:10pm to 2:57pm. All the trains go through Genoa, Italy but these 2 trains continue so you don't have to change trains. I was wondering about taking a slightly later train out of Milan (9:10am) so we could have time for our breakfast which is included in our hotel rate and then catch the later train to Cinque Terre, that arrives at 2:57pm. We would arrive at Genoa (Piazza Principe) at 10:40am and leave on this other train at 1:47pm so we would have 3 hours in Genoa.

I checked and there is a "left luggage office" where we can leave our bags so it is more a question of is 3 hours to walk around a little and have lunch in Genoa worth it?

Anyone been to Genoa who thinks this is a good idea and has any suggestions as to best way to spend the 3 hours?
