4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

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

Take the lift from Piazza della Meridana, you have to go through a tunnel passageway and cross the road in the road tunnel to reach the lift which is old wood paneled. At the top the views are wonderful over Genova and the port. There are cafes and bars here too. Then carry on by bus or take the lift... More

Definitely worth a trip up to it. The lift was easy to find off via garibaldi and tickets were only 90 cents. Once you get to the top the view is beautiful to look over the city centre and the docks. We spent around half an hour up there walking around as there are a few cafés and taking photos... More

Possibly the best view of Genoa. If you're lucky and you find yourself there on a sunny day you will not be able to leave until the end of the sunset. The view is simply stunning! the horizon is limpid, the sky incredibly blue, the beautiful old centre shines proud and you can see the flowers on the balconies, the... More

Spianata Castelleto is great for the tourist with not much time, because it can be easily accessed by walking up the considerable number of steps or taking the elevator (buy and stamp your ticket-they often check at the top or bottom of the elevator-one ticket is good round trip as long as it's within 1 1/2 hours) at Piazza del...
