If you find yourself in Varazze you must not miss this very relaxing walk. This used to be a 4 km stretch of train tracks that was relocated further north thus leaving a beautiful walking or cycling path that goes to Cogoleto, the next town. The views are spectacular and on a warm day, almost always, you can lose yourself and companion in one of the many secluded coves. This is not to be missed

That's a stunning way, done where an ancient railway use to have. You can walking or cycling around, there's a rent shop in Varazze. A lot of tunnels, a lot of amazing view places, a lot of chances to swim in the blue. Simply amazing.

It's just 50 years since this railway line closed (100 years after it was built) when the new line was built higher up in the towns. It's fascinating in the towns to see where it used to go (Arenzano particularly) but this cycle and walk way from there to Varazze is a treat in itself. It must have been one of the best scenic train rides but now you can stop where you like to enjoy the views. I walked from Arenzano to Cogoleto and got the bus back (€1.85, train a bit dearer) but then we took a half-day and hired bikes (from near the marina at Arenzano, €7 for 3 hours; they take identity details but then the time's your own and you only pay on return). We made it all the way (10km) to Varazze and back. Plenty of shade (other than in the tunnels!) if needed, except for the long promenade at Cogoleto. Straight back afterwards to the superb Tina's kiosk (Chiosco Tina) at Arenzano, looking over the small public beach and across to Genoa, for snacks and drinks.

I’ve cycled here a couple of times now. Very nice area. This time on a Saturday it was quite crowded especially close to Varazze. And in some villages along the track the bike path ends unexpectedly. So you either have to use the very busy street, or the footpath (pushing your bike or cycling really slow). Also the division between walkers and bikers is often not given (which is the case e.g. on the old train tracks between San Lorenzo and Ospedaletti).
