Nice views over the old Port

This lift gives you another perspective of the old port and the city. Good for taking some nice pictures.

The Bigo, I passed right next to it many times and I always wondered what it stood for. Unusually shaped, almost looks like a big spider emerge from the water. A modern property located in the ancient city port, it makes contrasts between the old and the new harbor. The beautiful panoramic view from here of much of the old... More

The view was pretty nice, wasn't too high to be nervous, but we were packed in tight and it was very hot. No A/C, no air circulation, I couldn't wait to get out. Not expensive and they do offer military and other discounts at the booth. The recording was in Italian only I believe, unless I was too hot to... More

For a small fee it offers a beautiful 360 degree view of Porto Antico and of a part of the old town from a 40m altitude.The trip doesn't takes too much,just about 15-20 minutes.

It's placed in Genoa's harbor and easy to access. Few minutes elevation and tour of Genoa town and harbor. Even on a rainy cold day was beautiful and worthwhile. Don't miss it.

Bigo is an elevator that brings you up to the top of the Porto Antico and shows you a breathless view of the oldest part of the City of Genoa. Very nice.

A very short, not very high panoramic view of the Old Port of Genoa. It's an interesting looking structure and I like that it has added a little variety to the old port (As well as helping retain a sense of the area's history) but its far better to look at than to get in. For Panoramic views of the... More
