Following the devastating bridge collapse in Genoa earlier this month, travellers should expect serious delays in the region. If you are heading to the ferry port, add extra time to allow for delays and check with your cruise company/ferry company for further information. If you are driving from France to Italy, consider using alternative routes.

From the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office

On Tuesday 14 August 2018, a section of the Morandi bridge in Genoa collapsed. The Morandi bridge connects the A10 motorway towards the south of France and the A7 motorway to Milan. It also connects major ports. Extensive disruption to road traffic in the area should be expected. You should check with your tour operator, cruise ship company or airline for updates before travelling, and allow additional time when travelling to Genoa airport.
