Just love strolling around in Portofino and old town of Genova! ❤️ Also eating at Eataly with the view of "our" ship in the port! 🛳 Also have a small wineshop, which we like to pop into and by a bottle on the best recomendations! 🍷
In Genoa, we took a ship organized shore excursion to Portofino which was excellent. First the bus took us to Santa Margherita, where we had some free time. Then, we took an enjoyable boat ride to Portofino. Here, we had plenty of time to explore and experience the picturesque area. Our guide was knowledgeable and helpful.

Absolutely fantastic ship. Nothing to complain about.... ok there was one thing. No kettles in cabin but all jokes aside I would get one again in a heart beat. Normally on P&O but MSC would be my new company of choice
This is the most convenient port. Free Wifi access at the port terminal. There's a tourist info desk, Tram/bus/metro right in front of the terminal. We bought "Genoa pass" for EUR4.50. Took bus 18 to Castelletto, took a lift up (included in the Genoa pass), for a birds eye view of the city. Then walked around the small pedestrian streets, and the Old Port before taking the metro back to the ship. I'm surprised MSC sells the Aquarium ticket for EUR22.90 (vs EUR26 at the Aquarium).

Take the little train from the port. It's only 8 euros for a 45 minute tour of the city with commentary and if it's raining, it keeps you dry!
