Climate, etc. Nervi, the oldest winter-station on the E. Riviera, is
backed on the N. by Monte Giugo, and is sheltered on the N.W. by the
Monte Moro, a spur of the Monte Fasce, and on the E. by the promontory
of Portofino, while it lies fully exposed to the S.E. wind. Its mean winter
temperature (52° Fahr.) is almost the same as that of the W. Riviera but
the rainfall at Nervi is more copious and the periods of dry weather less
prolonged. The relativo moisture of the three winter months is 60.1 per cent.
Nervi, a small town with 3500 inhab., surrounded with groves of
olives, oranges, and lemons, is much frequented in winter by Eng¬
lish, Russians, and Germans, as a health-resort. The Viale Vittorio
Emanuele, with its fine palms, leads to the N. from the railway-
station to the (3 min.) town, which is intersected from W. to E. by
the highroad, here called Via Cavour (to the W.) and Via del Pozzo
(to the E.). In the Via Cavour are the Giardino Pubblico flefti and
