Park and promenade
The Esperia hotel in Genoa is very close to the sea, but Nervi is appreciated not only as a destination for its “beaches” during the summer season or to enjoy the mild climate, but also for the fans of the green and nature and for those who want to enjoy the spectacular sea promenade.
In the park a blend of the Mediterranean essences with more exotic woods, imported by the noble owners of the villas can be found . The visual effect is enhanced by the sea-sight sloping towards the deep blue sea and a careful architectural layout.
Among the most beautiful spots, especially in spring, the Rose Garden of Villa Grimaldi.
Particularly popular among children, a symbol of the park of Nervi, is the large colony of squirrels which can be met by walking along the paths and avenues of the park. You can watch (and photograph!) them rather closely because they are accustomed to human presence.
The Esperia hotel is also just a few meters from the middle of the sea promenade A. Garibaldi. Here you can choose to reach the marina of Nervi, charming place where you can practice many sports, but also eat fish and focaccia in the characteristic restaurants or go to visit the tower and the rose garden.
