Genoa is a city set between the sea and the mountains. Here, you breathe the air of tradition and the past while walking in narrow streets, bordered by tall and ancient buildings. Walking in a crêuza you can hardly see the sky, but looking up you can still see women chatting trough their windows while they hang up their laundry. During the day streets are never silent, populated by street performers who sing and play, and from people who have just come down from some cruise ship. But during the night, the silence drops allowing you to be enchanted by the beauty of the lights reflected in the sea.


Crêuza (pronuonced ['krø:za]) is a Ligurian term often, Italianized in crosa, that indicates the typical narrow path or mule-track that often cuts vertically the hills of the Genoa and of all Liguria.
