Pegli (20 ft.), with 6100 inhab., ship-building yards, and an
oíd castle (Cattellazzo), a much visited summer sea-bathing place,
is cooler and moister than the W. wintering-places on the Riviera
and is itself visited as a winter-station by nervous sufferers.
Numerous beautiful walks in the wooded valleys and on the
hill-slopes lend a peculiar charm to Pegli, as compared withplaces
on the Riviera better protected by the mountains but more hemmed
in. The Passeggiata dei Villini, in the grounds of the former Villa
Elena, may be specially mentioned (fine views). Among the villas
are the Villa Rostan (15th cent.), with grounds in the English
style, the Villa Rapallo (adm. 1-2 fr.), and the Villa Doria (permesso
in the Pal. Doria in Genoa). The chief attraction is, however, the —-
*Villa Pallavicini (open on week-days 10-3, on Sun. & holidays
9-2; closed on Frid., Maundy ThuTsday, Easter Sunday, Whitsunday,
All Saints Day, and Christmas Day), now the property of the Marquis
de Campotéjar of Granada. The entrance is immediately to tbe left
of the .exit from the station; permessi are obtained at the stew-
ard's office, where visitors write their ñames in a book and receive
a guide (fee 1 fr..). The visit takes about 11/2 hr.
The grounds extending along the slopes of the coast display a profusión
of luxuriant vegetation and afford delightful prospects of Genoa, the sea, the
coast, and the mountains. On the highest point (to which visitors should
insist upon proceeding) stands a castle in the mediseval style with a tower
(view). Around it are indicationa of a simulated siege. Farther on is
a stalactite grotto with a subterranean piece of water; under the bridge
a striking glimpse of the lighthouse of Genoa and the sea. There are
also summer-housea in the Pompeian, Turkish, and Chínese styles, an
obehsk, fountains, surprize water-works, etc. The gardens contain fine
examples of the vanilla, cinnamon, and camphor plants, sugar-canes,
palma, cedars, magnolias, and azaleas.
