Today, I want to tell you about a small fishing village located inside the city of Genoa. This village which is very dear to me (especially in the spring/summer times) because of all the time I’ve spent in it, for the simple reason that it always welcomed me after a very long day of hard work. This small village is named, Boccadasse and it is an unique place in which you can relax for a few hours far from the hustle of the city.
Boccadasse is a 100th years old fishing village with a little beach and colorful buildings overlooking the sea. It is a little gem of Genoa and when you arrive there, it’ll give you the impression to be living in a postcard where time seems to stop. Some times when the sky is clear, from this small village you can even see the faraway village of, “Portofino”.
You can arrive into the village of Boccadasse by walking along the modern promenade (which was built during the two World Wars) of, “Corso Italia”.
This old village, it’s also the main destination for couples that will exchange their promises of eternal love, and of parents who’ll take their children to play on its beach. And of course if you wish, to have a refreshing ice cream or to taste some of the local food delicacies in its small restaurants.
Later from this same village, you can go for a relaxing walk that will take you toward the, “Capo di Santa Chiara” from where you’ll then admire the ancient villas and the medieval castle of Turckle together with its unique breathtaking view on the sea.
And if one day you’ll ever decide to visit this small seaside village, I’m positively sure that you’ll not be able to easily forget this very old and enchanting place.
