Pegli is a residential area in the suburbs of Genova, it was initially a renowned spa and has maintained its orientation as a seaside resort despite the industrialization of the city. It is a popular resort for foreigners who enjoy the village seaside effect it offers.

In and around Pegli you can visit some villas and museums of cultural and artisic interest and also the ruins of medieval times and the Liberty style villas.
Pope Benedict XV was born here as well as the singer/songwriter Fabrizio De André
Noteworthy is the vast green area of Pegli, thanks to the presence of numerous villas and historic parks.
In Pegli you can find many clubs and places to practise sports; swimming, tennis , football, volleyball, basketball and watersports,thanks to the nearness of the sea.
The area is also famous for it's many restaurants and seafood menus.
Pegli is only 10 kms from the centre of vibrant Genova and is easily reached by bus or train. You can also avail of a ferry service leaving directly from Pegli to the famous port of Genova or(in summer) you can also go to the Cinque Terra or Portofino.
From Pegli you can easily reach Pisa, Florence, Milan and Nice(All around 200km away). Rome-500km, Venice-400km.
If the big cities are not your thing then just take a drive or a train anywhere along the coast and you will find some beautiful, characteristic smaller towns with plenty of wonderful things to do.
