The Marina and the Anita Garibaldi Walk in Nervi – Genoa

Sunny day in Genoa: what would you like to do? Of course you go to have a walk by the sea! Between the marvellous places to choose, one of the most famous among Genoa people is Nervi, quarter which seems more a sea town by itself than a part of the city.

3.porticciolo_nervilNervi is composed by three main zones: upstream there’s the residential quarter, then the big grean area of the Nervi Parks (formed by the union of the gardens of villas Gropallo, Saluzzo Serra, Grimaldi Fassio and Luxoro, in the past private and now property of the city) and finally the part by the sea, including the peculiar Marina and the Anita Garibaldi Walk, which winds along the cliffs.

Today I’ll show you the images of this last route: you’ll be surprised by the vivid colours that makes all the landscapes seem as painted artworks.

The walk is on a cliff over the sea, but littered with passages and little stairs taking to the surface of the water

A lot of people stop here to watch it sadly: the waste of this wonderful position is a true shame.
