Genoa is one of Italy’s most underrated cities to visit, but is on the up. This gives it the great advantage of being home to all kinds of excellent museums — without the queues. Outside of the museums, explore the enchanting, winding streets of the Vicoli neighbourhood to really get a feel for the city.
Running tours in Genoa can be testing, as it has quite a few hills, but this also means stunning views. Ascensore Portello can take you up to the Castelletto viewpoint, which is the best spot for city vistas. However, if you fancy a challenge, you can always pull on your trainers and run up the steps.
Back on ground level, you can check out the Medieval historical centre with its quaint alleyways. It is full of churches from the Romantic, Baroque and Renaissance eras and is also home to the UNESCO World Heritage Strada Nuova. To get out on our trail running tour, you can take one of the many funiculars for a 5-minute ride to where the tour begins. This route takes you out into nature, where you can get beautiful views over the city.
If you want to see the city in a totally unique way, running tours in Genoa are the perfect option. Lace up and join your local guide for an unforgettable sightrunning experience.
