Nature and tranquility

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

Manarola is a small town, a frazione of the comune of Riomaggiore. It is the second-smallest of the famous Cinque Terre towns frequented by tourists, with a population of 353.

Manarola may be the oldest of the towns in the Cinque Terre, with the cornerstone of the church, San Lorenzo, dating from 1338. The local dialect is Manarolese, which is marginally different from the dialects in the nearby area. The name 'Manarola' is probably a dialectical evolution of the Latin, 'magna rota'. In the Manarolese dialect this was changed to 'magna roea' which means 'large wheel', in reference to the mill wheel in the town.

Manarola's primary industries have traditionally been fishing and wine-making. The local wine, called Sciacchetrà, is especially renowned; references from Roman writings mention the high quality of the wine produced in the region.
