From here you can see a good part of genoa. C is silence and the scent of thyme scattered all over the street. C is absolute peace and tranquility. You can go for a walk and sometimes meet grazing goats or horses for a giro. deserves to take a stroll around here, which despite being in the city you are completely isolated

Forte Quezzi .... Dominating the Quezzi valley and the Marassi district, Forte Quezzi can be reached by car from the Biscione district along an old military road today asphalted which, shortly before reaching the Biscione district, climbs to the right, plunging into a Pine forest. The entrance can also be reached with the AMT bus line 356. On foot from the Quezzi district or from Sant'Eusebio along the farm road called the church of Sant'Eusebio .... The fort ... now completely ruined ... stands on a panoramic shoulder of the ridge between Val Bisagno and the Valletta del Torrente Ferreggiano ... It was conceived in the eighteenth century .. but completed only in 1850. In the Second World War it was transformed into an anti-aircraft battery ... while today the building is completely in ruins ... In front of the fort there is a asphalted road .... which you follow to the right in a very slight climb near the ridge .. Then turn left and ... skirting a large reservoir ... you reach the Quezzi Tower (318 m), located on a large grassy ridge ... due to decades of neglect ... it is in precarious structural conditions ....

Io facendolo a cavallo e uno spettacolo consiglio a tutti di visitarlo anche solo per il panorama che offre

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
