Can you imagine what I thought when Kim came up with the idea to stay in an apartment in Bogliasco and I recognized the old Roman Bridge and the upper left balcony from Kurt Hielscher's photo? We stayed three wonderful days and nights and enjoyed perfect sunsets from the balcony. Looking down to the bridge and to the right from somewhere Kurt Hielscher made his photo. Was it from a nearby building? Was it from the train bridge? Was it already there at the time? Or from further away?

I decided he made the photo from the railway bridge, but it turned out that I could not rephotograph Kurt Hielscher's photo without risking my life and/or a get huge fine. I decided to check it. It turned out I did not dare and in the end, I chose the main road to chase the best view on the old Roman Bridge with this result.

Better not risk it, not only because of the fine. Please, check more photos of Bogliasco below.

Some photos from the bridge from different angles with our balcony on the upper floor of the yellow building looking down on the bridge. 

Bogliasco is situated, just south, a half an hour by train, from Genova. During our holidays in April and May 2023 we discovered the Ligurian coastline in between Genova and Pisa in Toscany. Though we skipped the Cinque Terre, we discovered like Bogliasco other gems like Camogli, Portofino and, Portovenere. 

With the beach at the front door, we could jump in the sea whenever we wanted. We could have stayed way longer but there was more to discover here in Italy and we had only two weeks.

Some more glimpses of Bogliasco, some of them with Kim strolling around, one taken on the bridge with the entrance to the apartment.

Enjoying the sunset on our balcony for three evenings.
