A one hour trip from Genoa to Casella, on this narrow gauge railway that screeches its way through rugged mountainous countryside. Great views over Genoa and of the forts on the old city walls. Very cheap at 4.5 euro each way. It's the locals' "bus."...More

The journey takes one hour and the views are worth the trip. It rained hard when we arrived in Casella and hail stones were seen when we returned: we didn't notice the hailstones but the parked cars in Genova were up to their wheel rims...More

Journey of 1 hour inland on electric narrow gauge railway to Casella. Beautiful scenery of coast and wooded hills. Many tunnels, viaducts and tight bends. At times noisy [wheels squealing] on corners. Staff at Genoa very helpful - made sure we understood impact of strike...More
