Arenzano

There are a number of festivals during the summer, as with many towns in Italy. It is very close to Genoa (the capital town of the province). The town is safe for children to grow up, but buying a house there can be quite expensive. During the summer time Arenzano becomes crowded. Arenzano has an elementary school, a middle school and a couple of kindergartens. It also has a golf course and a few tennis courts.

The town is home to many of the employees of the nearby architectural firm of Renzo Piano.
