Beautiful park which is very peaceful with stunning views over Chiavari. In some parts it needs some TLC, but nothing major. Worth a visit for only 1€

There is even a lift available (hiding, right at the back of the courtyard at ground level, in a passageway on the back right hand side) to get you halfway or more up to the entrance. Wonderful views from the terrace when you get out...More
