Nice walk

Really nice for a walk, not so much to do here, but if you need to escape from a city, its a good place to escape to with nice views of a harbour

This was ok for a seafront walk, but I wouldn't make a special trip. I had imagined this as a lush, grassy area next to the sea, with a boardwalk & places to sit & enjoy the view. The view is ok of the port but there are wild cats roaming about, its not that lush & dog poo all... More

Frankly, I expected something more, driven by curiosity pushed me to follow the straight road called Via Lincoln until you get close to the sea where it is assumed there is this Foro Italico.

The rocks by the sea are perfectly climbable and you often see people fishing off of them, or diving into the... More
