Anita Garibaldi promenade

Famous walk far beyond the borders of Genoa for its extraordinary beauty
Nervi Genoa Italy

The enchanting Nervi promenade (dedicated to Anita Garibaldi) is maybe the most evocative places and one of the most famous things to see in Genoa. It starts from the Nervi Marina up to the small beach “Capolungo”.

The promenade in summer hosts several bathing establishments, but is also frequented in the winter months. It is one of the most loved places by Genoese and visitors. It offers a wonderful sea view up to the Portofino promontory. A real appetizer of the Ligurian Riviera.

You can easy reach Nervi from the city center by train in a few minutes, the station is located along the promenade, or by bus number 17 (check out the route on foot from Quarto to Nervi)

The promenade is almost two kilometers long and runs alongside the Nervi Parks (once owned by noble Genoese families, today 92,000 m2 of urban park) and the Nervi Museums.
