Hotel Gennarino is a delightful castle in liberty style and it is located in Viale Italia no 301 on the seafront in front of the Naval Academy.
In this beautiful area you can admire all the villas in liberty style that dates from the beginning of the 20th century
Turning right from the hotel walking down towards San Jacopo in Acquaviva you will see a church that has been built on a 7th century hermitage looking over the sea.
Beside it, you will see the historic bathing establishment “Pancaldi“, further along you can’t miss the breath-taking “Terrazza Mascagni” where you can walk around or sit in one of the numerous bars along the sea-front and admire and feel the breeze of the “livornese sea!”
If you turn left from the hotel and walk towards “Ardenza”, you will come up to a tourist port which remains behind “La Baracchina rossa”, a famous meeting-place where you can eat or drink and perhaps bump into a famous “livornese” painter!
If you are looking for some shade, just enter in “La Rotonda” ,a small pine wood park where you will find seats to enjoy your rest, after a long walk or, perhaps, you will find that there is “Premio Rotonda” here (painting prize – many artists expose their paintings).
Just outside “La Rotonda” you may see many colourful wind-surf in Ardenza and Antignano,two places near the hotel, have the ideal beaches for this sport, practised both in the winter and in the summer ,weather permitting.
Hotel Gennarino is walking distance to “Caprilli” horse-races, the swimming-pool, the football stadium, tennis courts and the rugby stadium.
some of our italian famous athletes have origins here, like Federico Caprilli in which his home town has given his name to “caprilli” horse-race, Nedo Nadi and Aldo Montano ,fencing champions, Ilaria Tocchini swimming champion, Fabrizio Mori track athlete and Armando Picchi football champion, whose name has been given to the football stadium.
Hotel Gennarino has been restored and renovated. all the 23 rooms have been refurnished in liberty style; each floor is characterized by a warm rich colour: beige, green, blue or dark red which re-calls the tonalities and style of the period of the beginning of the 20th century.the breakfast rooms are also charming and, wheather permitting,one can have breakfast in the garden. Our guests will remain amazed and wonder if the hotel is superior to the category assigned, when they enter in the hall and see the beautiful cristal lamps,the floors covered with woods.
Hotel Gennarino has two rooms with extra-large bathrooms to guarantee comfort to our guests with handicap.
