Our activities

Be careful since this list might go on and on, but you have to start somewhere, that’s why you’ll surely enjoy a fantastic guided tour in the middle of the alleys!

Our walking tour starts early in the morning in order to find a good restaurant where you can have a dish of trofie with pesto. Immediately after, however, you have to resume the journey, perhaps along the promenade of Corso Italia down to Boccadasse for an ice cream or a very typical aperitivo. We return to the center to dine at the brand new Mercato Orientale and then enjoy a glass of wine in the legendary Piazza delle Erbe or the bright Giardini Luzzati…

And we didn’t even mention the fabulous Palazzi dei Rolli, Villa Pallavicino (Italy’s most beautiful park in 2017), exciting boat trips, urban trekking and do not miss the visit at largest european aquarium!
