Discovering the city
Starting from Nervi
Genoa has recently fueled a tourist commitment thanks to which many districts of the city have been reborn, among which Nervi stands out; it has always been a holiday destination and today a new home for major international events, such as Euroflora. In the most beautiful (and historical) part of the city Levante, Nervi is also well served by public transport and the railway, as well as perfectly connected by the motorway (Genoa is very long, and it is normal to use the motorway to move, taking advantage of the city's easy accesses). Thanks to a policy of tourism and entertainment that is intense and very oriented towards the cultural event, the calendar of the city is really full of opportunities not to be missed.
1000 years of history
With recent restorations and continuous enhancements, Genoa will allow you to cover 1000 years of history while remaining in the same neighborhood. It goes from the very modern (in spite of the name) Porto Antico with Aquarium, Biosphere, Bigo and Sea Museum, to the Historical Center (one of the most densely populated in Europe) with its carruggi, up to the gorgeous Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno, a open-air museum, rich of precious sculptures arranged into an atmosphere that is unique in the world. Not to mention Via Garibaldi, a UNESCO-protected road that is an outstanding example of an urban ensemble consisting of aristocratic palaces of high architectural value, which illustrate the economy and politics of the mercantile city of Genoa at the height of its power in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The Genoa Aquarium
A magical place, not just for children
The historical and cultural destinations are flanked by fun and scientific dissemination, with the famous Acquario di Genova, with the complex of the Museums of Genoa, and with the area of Porto Antico which, especially in the summertime, is location of interesting musical and entertainment events, and also hosts stable initiatives for children - such as the Children's City (Città dei Bambini).VISIT THE AQUARIUM WEBSITE
Harmony of sea and mountains
Villa Bonera is the ideal starting (and arrival!) point both to visit the city and to enjoy your stay by the sea or on the beaches of the beautiful neighboring towns; in the immediate surroundings we remind Bogliasco, Pieve Ligure, Camogli, until you arrive, passing by Santa Margherita, to the King of the Riviera di Levante, the promontory of Portofino, and find even further Sestri Levante (do not miss the Bay of Silence) and the Cinque Terre. These are unique places that we’ll help you discover.VISIT THE WEBSITE OF TOURISM OF THE MUNICIPALITY
The Cinque Terre
An unmatched territory
The Cinque Terre are 5 ancient fishing villages located along the indented Ligurian coast. Each of these villages is characterized by colorful houses and clinging vineyards to steep terracing built on the coast. The ports are crowded with fishing boats and in the typical restaurants you can try some seafood specialties. The Sentiero Azzurro is just one of the hiking trails stretching along the coast, linking each of the Cinque Terre to each other and offering beautiful views of the sea.VISIT THE CINQUE TERRE NATIONAL PARK WEBSITE
