Spianata Castelletto

A lovely belvedere high above the port of Genoa, with sweeping views of the area below and the port and harbour, including the lighthouse.

From Genoa Nervi on the East coast to the old port, to the West side with the shiips at container terminal and the steel plants. Below you can... More

We wanted to see the city from above and this was the easiest to get to from our hotel. It was a nice walk up and an even better trip down with the lift, which cost 80cent each.

This is one of my favourite places in the city centre. The view from here is simply beautiful. In the small place there also are some bars and in the summer it is also good to taste the granita in the shop nearby.

You get a panoramic view of Genoa. On the edge is the Funicular lift that takes you down to the busier part of town. Near the entrance is a fabulous local Gelato hot spot! It was very busy with locals and superb gelato:) YUM!

This is a residential part of genoa that sits high on a hill. It must be accessible by road but the easiest thing is to get a small lift that takes you up. You get great views across the whole city, and it's peaceful because it's not full of people flogging things to sell to tourists. We tried to find... More

A lovely view over the city and an interesting journey in the Funicular lift - costs 1.5 euros each. It is possible to walk back down from here.

This is a great place for a good view of the city. Using your bus pass, take the lift from Piazza Portello and then buy either ice cream or finger food and sit and enjoy the view. There is a circular route bus from the centre of the square which goes up and around higher parts of the city and... More

In my humble opinion this is one of the top attractions of the city. I was here with some friends recently, I came almost accidentally, a beautiful public terrace which enjoys a sublime view of the entire city, you can see pretty much everything, the old town, the harbor, the lantern, you can almost distinguish the churches. Also the beautiful... More

Absolutely stunning view and also very funny to take the lift upstairs in public space! Nothing special furtherwise. There is a nice gelateria.
