After our lunch - & rest! - we decided to finally walk east from our apartment in the late afternoon. Genoa is certainly built on many many hills but itís only in the walking in a straight line that one can appreciate it. Walking across the elevated road/bridge near our place, we came directly to the church of Santa Maria Assunta. We believed there was a supermarket near the church but never found it. The neighborhood was lovely with many old buildings. We headed north just to see what we would find, & came to the end of the plateau we had been on. Stunning views to the hills outside of old Genoa. We were really up high & my knees made the decision to pay for the little elevator down to Piazza Dante rather than take more steps. We still had a walk UP to our apartment but the whole excursion has been well worth it.
Thanks for looking!
