“Merita prendersi una mezza giornata per visitare i forti di Genova. Per chi ama camminare.”

Historic Site
“It is one of the most characteristic forts of the entire defensive walls of Genoa. It was built in 1758 right on the summit of Mount Diamante, about 667 meters high. The dominant position of the Polcevera Valley and the Bisagno Valley and the distance from the city centre made the Fort the first defensive bulwark of the city against the incursions coming from the North.”

Natural Feature
Colloquial Area
“From Varazze to Andora, there are 598 sq. mi. of coast, valleys and mountains. Here, wether winter or summer, life is lived amongst the blue sea and the green of olives and pines. A territory with unique panoramas and a mild climate eased by the sea allows for comfortable living year-round on the Riviera. Expansive sandy beaches alternate with rocky promontories encapsulating suggestive, uncontaminated shores. Vivacious coastal resorts offer guests a vast choice of where to stay, where to dine and where to go for a night out; whether in beach resorts, restaurants and clubs, there is always the option of environments suitable for both children and adults. Most beaches are private! The towns' historical centers, with their charming narrow streets (carruggi) that lead to sunny little piazzas and wind passed houses with façades of typical Mediterranean colors and unique architectural elements. Here lie the towns of Alassio, with its beach of very fine sand and its famous Muretto; Loano and its artistic fountains; Pietra Ligure with its monumental square; Finale Ligure and its ample palm-lined seafront; Fonal Borgo and it's amazing medieval center; Varigotti with its old center of colorful houses right on the waterfront... Not far from the coast lie two small, pristine islands, Bergeggi and Gallinara, regional natural reserves protected for their precious landscapes. Short journeys allow for the discovery of panoramas alternating hills with mountains, transparent seawaters and green landscapes with prehistorical caves and cliffs that take one's breath away. More than half this territory is covered with woods and forests, where old dwellings have been transformed into rural guesthouses. With opportunities to taste local produce and savour historical towns rich in traditions, trip and excursion ideas are truly limitless. ”
