In April 2023, I spent a week along the Ligurian coast of Italy. On our first night in Italy (after a long day of travel from Indianapolis to New York to Milan), we spent the night in Nervi. Nervi is on the eastern edge of Genoa and seems to be a great place to get away from the city for the day. I like to look at Google Maps, and I spotted the pleasant looking harbor while looking for interesting places to visit.
Nervi sports a wonderful seaside path that winds along the coast and ends in the town. A blue railing guards the edge along the path in some places. I found a winding section of the railing that I thought made a nice leading line into a photo of the town:
We ended up spending the night in Nervi, and I would certainly consider a return. It has a small, attractive beach area with restaurants. There were several wonderful focaccerias as well.
