Photo and description
Corso Italia is the main walking area of Genoa. This 2.5-kilometer road connects the city quarters of Foche and Boccadasse. Before the urbanization of Genoa's eastern suburbs, only a narrow road and hiking trails crossed the hills and cliffs where Corso Italia stretches today. This "promenade" was built after the end of the First World War as a result of an ambitious plan for the development of the entire Genoese quarter of Albaro, approved in the 1910s. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Corso Italia was completely rebuilt - new footpaths, benches and gazebos were added.
Today Corso Italia is one of the most popular and lively streets in Genoa. Couples in love and families with children love to walk here, there are opportunities for jogging. The street is lined with numerous restaurants, bars, swimming pools and sports clubs, which are always packed with residents of the city. There are also private beaches. Among the interesting sights of Corso Italy are the lighthouse Punta Vagno, the Abbey of San Giuliano, built in 1282, the Fortress of San Giuliano - one of the 16 ancient fortresses of Genoa, the Church of Sant Antonio, the fishing village of Boccadasse and Lido di Albaro - the famous beach resort >
