                      Stay near Forte Sperone

                      Forte Sperone is a huge 16th-century citadel set within the 2,000-acre Parco Urbano delle Mura, Genoa's largest park. A ten-minute drive from the city centre, Forte Sperone was once part of a network of defensive walls that surrounded Genoa, which at the time was one of Europe's largest fortification systems.

                      If you'd like to stay within easy reach of Forte Sperone, book accommodation in the heart of Genoa. Choose from famous international brand hotels, characterful historic properties, swish spa resorts, family-friendly apartments and basic motels.

                      Forte Sperone’s Part in Genoa's Defensive Walls and Fortresses

                      Genoa is surrounded by an eight-mile triangle of ancient walls dating back to the 1600s, which were renovated in the 18th and 19th centuries. Designed by Bartolomeo Bianco, these fortifications, known as the New Walls (La Nuova Mura), have fortresses all along them, one of which is Forte Sperone. Perched atop Mount Peralto at 1476 feet above sea level, Forte Sperone is at the highest point of the New Walls.

                      Visiting Forte Sperone

                      Tto see the entire network of defensive walls that used to protect Genoa, you'll need to hire a car, although seasoned hikers can walk various sections of the route. Drive past meadows, pastures and forests to see the remains of the walls that now surround the rolling green hills of Parco Urbano delle Mura, studded with chestnut and pine trees.

                      Transformed into a citadel by the House of Savoy in the 19th century, Forte Sperone's many highlights include its impressive entrance with its enormous door with the Savoy crest of arms above it. In times gone by, you would have crossed a drawbridge over a moat to enter, but now there is a path bridging the gap.

                      Also worth a look are its quaint chapel and central barrack building. Since the 1990s, the Forte Sperone has been used as a dramatic setting for theatre shows during the summer months thanks to its sweeping views over the city and the port.

                      Find accommodation in Pre, near Genoa’s main railway station, so you’re within easy reach of Forte Sperone.
