Italy, Genoa, 25 – 27 July 2017

Another ferry trip to get from Bastia, Corsica to Genoa, Italy, a 10 hour journey, departed at 2145 (45 min late) and arrived at 0715 (15 min late) the next day. Cost 34.63 euro that includes a discount of 7.50 euro from the previous trip, cheap compared to the other ferry trips.

Genoa, a big port city, population 1.5 million and the birth place of Christopher Columbus, the old town is well preserved and a good place to walk around. Public transport consists of Trains, Busses and one Metro line, I only used the train 1.60 euro a ride valid for 100 minutes on all forms of transport.

I took the train to Sturla station and walked to Boccadasse a picturesque village with a tiny rocky beach and from there walked along the Corso Italia a beautiful promenade along the coast all the way back to Genoa.

Passeggiata Anita Garibaldi, another great walk but quite different from the Corso Italia, this one is narrow and hugs the rocky cliffs around Nervi and it has a red carpet along its full length of 1.8 km. I took the train to Nervi station and as the station is in the middle of the walk I had to walk up to one end and then walk to the other end and back again.
