TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

This running tour is the perfect opportunity to discover typical Genoa alleyways in one of the biggest historical centres of Europe. Starting from the central Piazza de Ferrari this running tour guides you through the streets of the historical centre. This old part of Genoa is absolutely unique: you will enjoy an impressive maze of narrow “caruggi” (typical alleyways), several churches from different historical periods, old elegant buildings of the famous ‘Strada Nuova’ (recognised as a Unesco World heritage site with other palaces called “Palazzi dei Rolli”) as well as a lot of small and charming markets and shops.

Runners will also run in the old port ( that is today very modern) completely restructured by the famous architect Renzo Piano for Expo 1992 ( the international Exhibition celebrating the 500 year anniversary of the discovery of America by Cristoforo Colombo)., The area is a beautiful square overlooking the Mediterranean Sea which now includes the Aquarium, restaurants, bars, cinemas through the piers of the touristic Port.

You will also have the possibility to run up a small hill which presents an amazing view of the city and the commercial port along with its famous lighthouse called ‘la Lanterna’.

The tour finishes with runners crossing the elegant commercial streets and ending the tour again in Piazza De Ferrari.

  • 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.

That will give the guide/city manager enough time to arrange together with you the last tour details like the meeting point, start time and to organize a personal tour guide for your unique and fun running experience.
