What you'll do

We will walk along ancient footpaths called "creuze" , which connect the sea to surrounding hills ; you can only find them in Liguria and expecially in Genoa. We will discover the best panoramic glimpses and get you to know some history of the city through singing stories accompanied by the sound of a small guitar. Be prepared for a good walk, although we will use the public lift and the cable car to get to the highest points.

We recommend you to wear comfy shoes

My name's Viviana, I feel really lucky to live in such a charming city like Genoa and I'd like to share its hidden treasures with travellers.
My husband Alessandro and I are passionate about music, he's a songwriter and a licensed tour leader , we like to sing and play together and share anecdotes and legends about the city likewise the old storytellers.
We like hiking and taking pictures and Genoa is a perfect place for those activities: walking along picturesque pathways called "creuze" you can enjoy a stunning panorama a few steps from the city center

Where you'll be

From Piazza Portello we will take the public lift up to Spianata Castelletto, where you'll have a wonderful view over the city. We will walk along some beautiful "creuze" and explore the medieval district of Carmine. A few steps from there we will catch the historical funicular which will take us to Righi, the highest point of this tour. We'll get down through some other charming "creuze" and enjoy the amazing panorama you can see from Via Chiodo

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 7 reviews.

Really lovely walk through the higher part of the city and down the crêuza! Alessandro‘s stories and songs were also really beautiful, set in perfect locations. Really a unique experience!

If you want to discover the hidden secrets of Genoa and the interesting tales of the creuze’s make sure you book this tour with Viviana & Alessandro. My wife and I would never have been able to discover the places Alessandro took us to and the knowledge gleaned was excellent. What made it more memorable was the quirky songs he sang whilst playing his guitar. It seemed to help absorb the information given. All in all a great day out.

I'd been looking forward to seeing 'le creuze' and the tour didn't disappoint. Alessandro showed a side of Genoa that is totally different from the one you see in the midst of the narrow, winding streets (carruggi). It was like being in the peace of the country but only steps from the bustle of the city. The songs added to the experience, bringing the history to life. I highly recommend this tour.

The tour with Alessandro was superb. It was interesting and we were able to have a deeper understanding of Genovese history and how people lived. We loved all the panoramas too. Highly recommended.
