A. M. La Funicolare

Bed & Breakfast
Via Marco Polo, 12/9B - Genova (GE) - Area: city center
Codice identificativo: 010025-BEB-0141
Stately home, in a residential area of ??the early twentieth century, with Venetian floors and stuccoed ceilings view. Recently renovated, the main bathroom is dedicated to guests who will stay in a bedroom with a double bed (140 cm wide), in which there is also a single bed (picture n° 1).

In B&B "AM La Funicolare" the visitors will enjoy the utmost tranquility, being located very close to the "San Nicola" Station of the "Zecca-Righi Funicular". The B&B is located in the Castelletto district called San Nicola, halfway along the Zecca-Righi route (picture n° 13). With the "funiculare", therefore, the visitor can reach the historic center in only 7 minutes. Once the visitor gets off at Largo Zecca (pictures n° 11 and 12), may reach, in a few minutes on foot, the Royal Palace in via Balbi or the Aquarium in the Porto Antico, the Palazzo Ducale (crossing the beautiful Via Garibaldi, a Unesco heritage site), the San Lorenzo Cathedral and go to the discovery several alleys, churches, newsstands and much more. It will be a pleasure for me to suggest interesting itineraries and to recommend visits.

The visitor can reach the B&B by car, by taxi, by bus (n° 36) whether the visitor comes from the Principe or Brignole Stations (pictures n° 6, 7, 8) or by bus (n° 606) after 8PM; with the "Zecca-Righi funiculare" (picture n° 13) or with the minibus F2 that sometimes replaces the "funiculare" (picture 14); finally with the bus (n° 375) that leaves from Spianata Castelletto (only during the day - picture n° 18).

To find out the updated timetables of buses n° 36, 606, of the "Zecca-Righi funiculare", of the mini F2 and of the bus 375, the visitors should, please, consult the website: AMT timetable in pdf.

B&B La Funicolare is very well located in a historic area of the city of Genova, being easily accessible. Both the structure and cleanliness are impeccable and Alessandra (manager) makes you feel at home and well taken care of. She also gives great cultural tips. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
