  • Perfect spot to hangout with friends, go for a walk with your partner or to have lunch. A little bit of everything.

  • Busy Genvoa/ Genoa port full of all walks of modern Italian hustle and bustle. Wide open port vista's compared to the ancient narrow lanes of the old town. A gem of crumbling and restored renaissance buildings all mingled together. Thousands of tiny shops and cafes. Not posh and a little seedy in spots but life in all directions.
