TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This running tour is the perfect combination of great nature, amazing history and stunning views.

We will reach the the Funicolar Zecca-Righi in about 10 minuets from the center centre, and we travel with this to discover Righi – the big hill towering 302 meters above Genoa. This amazing nature area divides different valleys of the city and from here you will enjoy amazing views both of the city and its gulf including the port and the Promontory of Portofino.

The Righi area is also famous for its Mura, a walls system built in the 17th century including several forts built betweeen 18th and 19th centuries forming one of the largest fortification systems in Europe.

You will run on single tracks trough small forest that leads to several small summits. Also, runners will experience all the principal forts : Castellaccio, Forte Begato, Forte Sperone, Forte Puin, Fratello Minore and Forte Diamante which can be reached by running up its spectacular hairpin turns. From Forte Diamante you will run down a beautiful single track reaching the Funicolar station stop at Righi and then its back down to Genoa.

A running tour that is true balm for the soul – amazing nature, stunning views and long Italian history!

  • DO YOU CANCEL IF IT RAINS?
    No we do not cancel our tours if it rains, storm etc. It is very rare that conditions are so bad, that we have to cancel, so if you are in doubt - expect to run. 

    WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
    In Genoa we have mild winters and warm summers, so weather conditions do not vary significantly. But it is always a good idea to check the weather conditions before travelling to Genoa, so that you know what temperatures to expect. 

    During the colder months we always recommend people to wear long sleeves as we have short stops along the run, in order to take photos and for the guide to talk about the attractions. 

    In summer you can easily just wear a t-shirt and a pair of shorts/tights. A hat can also be very handy in summertime in general.  

    IS THERE WATER ON THE TOUR?
    We will provide you with bottled water during the tour. Also there are a few public water fountains along the way, so if you are in need of a sip of water, simply ask the guide to point out a drinking spot.

    HOW FAST DO YOU RUN ON THE TOURS, DO I HAVE TO BE AN ELITE RUNNER TO PARTICIPATE?
    The running pace is set on our private tours by you.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO STORE BAGS AND CLOTHES AT THE PLACE WE START?
    Unfortunately, there is no storage for bags. Please travel light.

    IS IT POSSIBLE TO TAKE PICTURES ALONG THE WAY?
    Yes, you can bring your camera and snap away. If there is a certain place you would like to take a picture, then simply ask your guide.

    DO YOU HAVE A HOTEL PICK-UP SERVICE?
    We offer for our private tours an optional hotel pick-up service. The hotel or apartment building should be on or close to the tour route. 

    Please let us know your complete hotel or apartment address during the tour reservation process and we will check if we can meet you at your hotel/apartment.
