Stazioni Marittime S.p.A is the company which has been planning, constructing and operating passenger terminals in the Port of Genoa since 1989.
The company manages five passengers terminals: two purpose-built terminals at Ponte dei Mille and Ponte Andrea Doria are dedicated to cruise traffic, whilst three terminals, at Calata Chiappella, Ponte Caracciolo and Ponte Colombo, are primarily used for ferry traffic. In total, the sites cover approximately 290,000 sqm of surface area, offering 12 berths, along 3000 metres of quays.
Since the early nineties, Stazioni Marittime, together with the Port Authority of Genoa, have invested over €122 m on radically redesigning the dock area, the internal road network, renovating existing buildings and constructing new purpose-built infrastructure to position Genoa as a leading Mediterranean cruise and ferry hub.
Access to the terminals is easy as the passenger port is located just 5 km from Genoa International Airport and 200 m from the railway station, whilst Genoa’s harbour is directly linked to the European motorway network. All Stazioni Marittime-managed terminals are at the forefront of safety and security measures, adhering to all recent strict IMO and EU regulations.
Genoa is an important homeport for cruise ships sailing to destinations in the west and east Mediterranean, to North Africa and the Atlantic islands. It is also a port of departure for repositioning cruises to and from the Americas and Northern Europe.
The Ponte dei Mille Cruise Terminal covers over 16,000 square meters (including the embarkation terraces) on three levels connected by escalators and lifts. The terminal can accommodate two large cruise vessels and up to 10,000 passengers a day. Stazioni Marittime features a quay 340 m in length capable of handling the latest generation of post-Panamax cruiseships. Ponte dei Mille offers an additional berth 290 metres in length along the eastern side of the building.
The Ponte Andrea Doria Cruise Terminal has a total surface of approximately 11,000 square metres on two floors and features two berths of 300 metres in length which can host the last generation of ships in full safety supporting total traffic of 8,000 passengers/ day.
