taken on my birthday in Nervi, Liguria. Italy

 

Nervi is a former fishing village , now a seaside resort in Liguria, in northwest Italy. Once an independent comune, it is now a quartiere of Genoa. Nervi is 7km east of central Genoa.

Located 25 meters above sea level, Nervi is the oldest winter resort on the Riviera di Levante[2], the part of the Italian Riviera east of Genoa. At the beginning of the century, it's mentioned as being surrounded with groves of olives, oranges and lemons, and beautiful gardened villas. The climate is moist and less dusty than the Riviera di Ponente, the part of the Italian Riviera west of Genoa, and is especially in favor with those who suffer from lung complaints.
