What you'll do

The 113 hectares Historic Centre of Genoa is one of the most extended medieval Historic Centre of Europe, is an UNESCO world heritage site. The Genoese Historic Centre is a maze of alleys (caruggi) that unexpectedly end up in small squares. You will be with me on a fantastic bike tour through the old and narrow "carruggi", the ancient port and a panoramic view of the whole city from the hills behind . Historical details and description by audio cassette available if requested in advance (extra cost € 11.50). For those interested, I coulld reccomend and book a typical genoese restaurant where having lunch/dinner. We will ride all along the historic downtown, discovering hidden corners only local people know about.
The historical center of our city is a maze of narrow streets and alleys ("carruggi") in which it is difficult to find one's way if not accompanied by a local person. That’s why I shall be with you!

Hi, I'm Claudio, a happy retired man, still reasonably fit, who runs his present life finally doing things he likes. E-Mountain biking is one of my passions and, in the late years, I have been busy mainly biking along the ridge of our Ligurian mountains where I have disigned and tracked an entirely rideable mtb trail of 590 kms. You can find more details, information and shots of this on my web site www.liguriatrail.it and on https://youtu.be/LFtYyhJV9r0 .
I became a certified mtb Guide of the “Accademia Nazionale di Mountain Bike, I speak English and French.
