The Giovi Pass is a pass in Italy in the northwestern Ligurian Apennines north of Genoa.

Geography[edit]

The pass is at 329 metres (1,080 feet).[1]

A railroad from Genoa to Turin and Milan runs through the pass via a tunnel that is 1,686 metres (5,531 feet) long.[2]

The pass is also accessible by off-road mountain paths and is crossed by the Alta Via dei Monti Liguri, a long-distance trail from Ventimiglia (province of Imperia) to Bolano (province of La Spezia).[3]
