Sports & Genova

Genova doesn't offer idle tourists any alibi. Genova is a sports-minded city that provides even beginners with a thousand possibilities to move and enjoy themselves doing so. In 2014, Genova put on its first Festival of Sport, organized in concomitance with the World Cup held in Brazil. Visitors to the event were able to try out—in addition to traditional sports—sporting disciplines less known or related to the summer season such as:  beach tennis, diving and foot golf.

Genova and its surrounding areas, for the most part, are an enormous open-air gym. The river bed of the torrents from Monte Beigua, the rock gym of the Torrioni di Sciabordasca, the Itinerario (Itinerary) Storico Colombiano, the circuit of the Forti…. 

On foot, by bicycle or horseback, the opportunities are splendidly ample. If you go to Righi, for example, you will find a gymnastic route with equipment where it is possible to work out fully immersed in Nature. Along the stretch of road that from the Piazza di Coronata leads to Borzoli, you will find Lago Figoi, a sports complex where even expert runners can be put to the test navigating their fleeting feet up and down challenging slopes.

Golfers, too, are accomodated easily. They can choose, without going very far from Genova, the Garden Golf of Albaro at the St. Anna Golf Club designed by Robert Von Hagge: an 18-hole course not far from the sea and a touristic, sportive district that is quite impressive.

And then there is the sea! Here you will find a vast gamma of opportunities. There are accommodations for yachtspeople, sailing schools such as the Scuola di Mare (School of the Sea) in collaboration with the Italian Yacht Club—the oldest sailing club in the Mediterranean.... At Genova you can find what you need including the first-in-Italy canoeing camp that in 2002 won the Nation's Cup.
