Nice shots
Genova is a underrated city imo, I really like it's kind of chaotic style.

Beautiful, I love Italian cities, although only visit during a day trip over from France to Genoa. Still it was a nice drive, and seeing the many villages along the way. Much of the country side (vegetation) reminded me a lot of the California landscape, mostly the San Joaquin Valley aka Central Valley.

Very nice photos. I used to live at residence di CORTE LAMBRUSCHINI (The modern buildings in the first photo) in 2003. I used to work in a coffee company near Plaza Ferrari.

Very beautiful. It has some resemblance to Nice, France which is just a bit further west along the Mediterranean coast. In fact, both Nice and Genova were both part of the same kingdom and other entities, like the House of Savoy.

It's indeed a nice drive.. A lot of tunnels though. Beautiful coast line, with the 'terasses landscape' on the other side, And there are a lot of curves in the highway, so it's quite a long drive. But it's nice!

Oh yes, I almost forgot about the tunnels, I thought they were pretty cool. Some of them very long, but that was what I liked. We have some in the LA metro that cuts though some hills, but nothing like what I seen in Italy and France.

I also love those the portion of the elevated highways. I was rather excited to see those dense villages we pass underneath them. I can recall numerous residental highrises, and had never seen anything like this in the USA.

I was a bit nervous at the low railings. Bascially I kept thinking about how dangerous it looked. Like if someone crashed at a high speed and lost control. They could easily go over the rails to the deeps below (those villages). To me it look as though the drop could have been 500 feet or more.

Again thanks for sharing your photos, and bringing back some fond memories of my trip.

Your welcome . I was on vacaction in a little town called Ceriale. It's about 40 km from Genova. There are indeed low rails and a lot of curves that makes you drive slow, but you can enjoy the landscape then Genova is indeed real dense, impressive when you are looking from the highway
