The Passeggiata Anita Garibaldi is Genoa’s most seductive seaside promenade and perfect for a relaxing day out, with a stroll that takes in dramatic grand villas, gardens and galleries, and all just a 20-minute train ride from the centre. Nervi is Genoa’s prettiest suburb and is magical in all seasons, especially from
spring to autumn. The easy, well-kept two-kilometre trail hugs the cliffs but is also a stepping-stone to three art museums set in villas along the promenade. If the art doesn’t appeal, stop for ice-cream, drinks and snacks en route or simply admire the wild views towards the Portofino promontory.
