Coming into Genoa, and faced by tall pallazi, one sometimes forgets that this is a city built on the slopes of a considerable hill. The viewpoint from Castelletto gives one a wonderful panorama of the city, at a minimal - or even no if one has a 24-hr travel card - cost, since one requires a local transport ticket. The... More

Very interesting view from the top of Genova! A spectacular 360 surround that shows you how beautiful Genova is!

Beautiful views for free and a little effort if you take the stairs, otherwise you can take the public elevator for a very small fee. I liked the information viewing board which indicated where all the main buildings around town were. Very interesting.

I was born close to this place and so I have been there so many times...but any time I get there there is a magic feeling! If you are a foreigner visiting my hometown, you can get there very easily ( 5 minutes with an elavator from via Garibaldi) and enjoy the breathtaking view of Genoa from the top. Don't... More

We were due to join our cruise ship later in the day and we could see it from this point. Some went up in the lift... More

Good panoramic sights over the old and new port and the city. Access is by lift using the standard 100 minute transit ticket. The entrance is a little bit tricky to find, but for photographers it's a very good point

A little hard to find. Easiest from Via Garibaldi...worth the views. Wonderful. Panoramas of the city. Park benches and map that highlights the key structures...domes and towers of the city. Lovely.

Good panoramic views over the port and the city. Access is by lift using the standard 100 minute transit ticket. If you don't spend your 100 minutes here use the ticket to ride the Funiculaire Sant Anna from the other corner of Piazza del Portello.

There aren´t many places in the world which could offer you really nice views on the city without having to pay a lot of money or having to wait for hours or having to walk kilometers on the hill. But this terrace offers you exactly this without any effort for free. All you need to do is to find it... More
