Nervi Things to Do

  • Park in Nervi

    This park has created a habitat for the typical plant life of the Riviera such as pine, ilex and palm trees but you can also find rare exotic trees. Within the park of Villa Serra there is the Gallery of Modern Art where you can admire a vast range of Ligurian art of the 19th and 20th centuries. Well represented are the works of Barabino.

  • The most fun you can have in Nervi

    Go to the big parco which stretches from the railway station nearly to Bogliasco and includes two villas which are museums.Sit quietly and watch as every nonna in Nervi brings a kid with a plastic bag full of nuts and watch the bandit squirrels appear and catch the hazel nuts on the rebound.It is as funny as a fight as they crouch with their bounty...

  • park...

    and if it's not roses time, you can relax in the park or try to catch, with your camera I mean, the lively squirrels in this pic a small palm of the park...

  • roses...

    the roseto is to see only pay attention that you are in the right period of the year for the blooming of roses ;-)...and if you are asking why on hell I took a pic of this faded rose, it's because I owe it a kindness...

  • walking...

    I know my pic isn't so thrilling, I realized it even before taking it seeing what I was framing but I wanted to show you what kind of promenade you have under your feet...

  • passeggiata...

    Nervi has a long promenade... well actually it's up, not exactly at the sea level but with views on it worth to be seen...


Nervi Restaurants

  • seasonal produce and a hip vibe...

    Started with a vegetable souffle, followed with black ink gnocci in a pomodoro sauce then freshly grilled squid. For dessert, pastry from Sciliy and a few glasses of grappa. 4 course meal, bottle of wine, 3 grappas and espresso - 48 E.Attractive setting - attractive crowd.

  • Sun,sea,beer and tapas?

    There are several bar/cafe's along the seafront, none are very expensive either, when the sun shines they are a god place to be. All offer some snacks to go with your beer

Nervi Transportation

  • Free toilette on Nervi Station

    In my experience it is a bit unusual to have a free toilette on a railway station in Italy. And not a unisex one either. The mens has two squats and the ladies has one squat plus a wheelchair thingo. (Suppose that is unisex.)Golly those squats are hard work if you are not used to them. A friend suggested they should have a handle on the wall to...

  • Part of Genova thus Ge. Nervi

    Nervi is a suburb of Genova and is one of those stations all the trains stop at. Unlike Bogliasco.It's got a newsagents and a cafe - the cafe doesn't seem to have a gabinetto and if you go in looking for one they shout at you to use the one on the station. Bit rude. But the cafe does a very nice and reasonably priced cafe macchiato.

  • bus...

    from Genoa centre, more precisely in the old harbour zone (il porto antico), the bus nr. 15 brings to Nervi - the bus stop is next to San Giorgio Palace - but depending on the moment of the day an on the traffic, it could take long, very long... so I go on suggesting the train...note: if you decide for the bus, remember to buy the ticket before...


Nervi Shopping

    A town that caters for locals and villa...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Nervi is a proper little town with a supermarket and a post office etc etc. BUT it also caters for the richer folk in their villas and has some very superior and expensive boutiques lining the main drag. Trissy and amazing bags, shoes, frocks etc. Incredible lingerie. Super expensive wisps! And it also has the workaday cafes and bars and tabacs and newsagents. To find clothes and underwear and shoes of the more ordinary sort, head off the main street. Or go into Genoa, just a short train ride away.

Nervi Local Customs

  • when the bell rings...

    definitely a local custom: it sounded strange to me too when I read that the rose garden opens at 8, and this is normal, but it closes "when the bell rings" which is not a normal closing time... lol...

  • cats...

    cats in Liguria can be considered a custom and for sure it's a custom for me to take them pics whenever I can...this one in particular is a very old lady which was taking a walk out of its garden or at least so said to me its guy... yes, don't you know that we belong to cats and not viceversa ;-)...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

Nervi Warnings and Dangers

  • When it rains gatti e cani ...

    ... in Nervi - which it does from time to time - rivers of water rush down from the hills and turn the charming narrow streets into rivers. And there are no awnings on the charming little houses so waterfalls of water fall straight off them on top of you - and all in all one can feel like one is getting drowned. An umbrella is essential but...

  • don't...

    please don't do this, it's not a custom, it's a bad habit... maybe I'm exaggerrate to think that plants grow better (I was said once) if you speak to them but why shall we arrogate the right to use them like paper on which to write???... please don't...
