The AMT bus network is generally considered the best way to get around in Genoa, operating throughout the city until 1am. There is also a network of trains, although this is not as comprehensive, that connects the Brignole train station to the town centre, Porto Antico tourist area, the Stazione Principe (main train station) and the ferry terminal. Tickets are available from newspaper kiosks or underground stations. AMT also operates a public boat servie called Navebus, which connects Porto Antico to Pegli, and offers good views of the city. Driving is often said to be the fastest way tog et around Genoa, however finding a parking space can be a nightmare. Visitors who opt to hire a car in Genoa will find it easiest to park outside the city centre, as most attractions within are in easy walking distance of each other.
