  • One of the places where you can visit when you go to Genova. Near the old port Sunday, he and the Board would recommend that you see sometimes. Local products are sold, it's a good opportunity in terms of cultural experience.

  • The walk is beautiful, especially in days of calm winds. However, it was continually bothered by extra-community from abusive valets that are dangerous. A plague must delete.
