    Genoa

    You can read this article in Italian or English.


    This article provides specific information about local laws that apply to people who host their homes in Genoa. Just like our country article for Italy, it’s your responsibility to verify and comply with any obligations that apply to you as a host. This article can serve as a starting point or place you can come back to if you have questions but it isn’t exhaustive and it doesn’t constitute legal or tax advice. It’s a good idea to check to make sure laws and procedures are current.

    Some of the laws that might affect you are complicated. Contact the City of Genoa or consult another local authority, such as an attorney or tax professional, if you have questions.

    Italy’s national legislation contains rules that apply at the regional and municipal level, such as the Tourism Code and Legislative Decree no. 79 of May 23, 2011.

    Check out Genoa’s video about responsible hosting for an overview.

    Hosting categories

    All accommodation providers in the Liguria region, whether occasional or professional, falls within the categories identified by Regional Law No. 32/2014. Each category has its own set of administrative obligations.

    This article provides information about the most common accommodation categories among hosts who list on Airbnb.

    If you’re a professional host or run a hosting business, we recommend seeking a professional’s advice, researching the laws directly, or consulting the Liguria's regional website.

    Furnished tourist apartments

    If you offer rentals of up to three residential units, houses, or apartments you own within your municipal territory without holding the status of a business, you can apply to the “furnished apartments for tourism” category.

    If you fall into this category, you must inform the regional government where the property is located of when you intend to offer the accommodation and the number of beds you’ll provide.

    Professional hosts

    If you are or want to become a hospitality professional by offering additional services or becoming part of another category, then notice will no longer be sufficient.

    You will have to:

    Bed and breakfasts

    If you prefer to sharing part of your home as opposed to the entire place, you might consider applying in the bed and breakfast category. In this category, you can offer a maximum of 4 rooms in your own home, provided you guarantee you’ll reside on the property during the periods you host guests.

    General requirements for Bed and breakfasts:

    Check the regional site for Liguria for more information about bed and breakfasts.

    Tourist tax

    The Municipality of Genoa's regulation provides that the tourist tax applies to those who stay overnight in all forms of accommodation, including furnished Apartments for Tourist Use, up to a maximum of 8 days.

    Hosts who share their space in the Municipality's administrative territory are required to collect it directly from their guests and to pay it to the Municipality on a monthly basis, within fifteen days from the end of each calendar quarter. From August 1st 2017, for all the nights booked on Airbnb, Airbnb automatically collects a tourist tax of 1 euros per night for each guest.

    Further information on the procedures, exemptions and amount of the tax is available on the Municipality of Genoa's website.

    Tourist flows

    All hosts, with the exception of apartments furnished for tourist use, have the duty to issue notices of tourist flows.
