Nature rises in the city of Genoa! Thanks to the mild climate and the strategic position on the sea, but with the Apennines at its shoulders, Genoa boasts a rich and varied flora: botanical gardens and parks in the city center, Mediterranean vegetation on the coastal strip, green woods on the mountain highlands. Only in the city center, public parks occupy 82,000 square meters of land! If you want to relax in a green oasis, the ideal places are the Parks of Nervi, the Park of Villa Durazzo Pallavicini, the Garden of Villa del Principe, the Botanical Garden, Villa Imperiale, Spianata dell’Acquasola, Villetta Di Negro and the park of Castello d’Albertis.
The Parco delle Mura and its Forts embrace the city from above: 617 hectares of hills between Val Bisagno and Val Polcevera ideal for hiking or mountain biking. The Parco delle Mura can also be reached by the spectacular train of Casella, which connects the city center to Casella, with spectacular views over the whole valley on a 25 km itinerary.
