The city of Genoa is fairly large (about 28 km from Voltri, the Westernmost neighborhood, to Nervi in the East). A comprehensive public transportation network runs throughout the city. This includes main rail lines (operated by Trenitalia), as well as buses, cable cars, public elevators, one water-bus line, and a short underground line (all operated by AMT -- www.amt.genova.it).
Tickets must be purchased prior to boarding (usually at newsstands), and cost (2012) €1.50 (Carnet of 10 tickets 14Euros) for unlimited bus rides and/or one train ride during 100 minutes. There is also a daily ticket (€4.50 for one person, €9.00 for four people traveling together), valid 24 hours from initial stamping. Travelers arriving at the Genoa airport can use the 'Volabus' shuttle to reach the city center. The shuttle ticket (sold on board the bus) costs €6.00, and includes a 60minutes journey on the Amt network ( buses, metro, public elevators and funicular railways), in the same day.
The AMT website linked above has complete information, including a map with all public transport lines (http://www.amt.genova.it/pdf/mappa_Ge...).
