The castle is a great place to get lost in wonders, artefacts and ideas, with a beautiful terrazza overlooking the entire harbour of Genoa. Located at 15-minute walking distance from Genoa central station, it offers a rewarding, palm-shaded view after climbing up the hill of...More

The Castello d'Albertis is an amazing place to visit, if only for the views alone. But there is much more to see and well worth the visit. It houses the Museum of World Cultures and as such has some great displays.

Amazing view, nicely done. This man traveled the world and brought back so many things. It was off season so we were all alone to enjoy it.

The trek to the castle was an experience in itself, an amazing invention of a train that travelled horizontal then lifted you up to the top, a little terrifying but also exciting, beautiful castle on the top of the hill filled with historical artefacts

You have to use the train/lift, it's an experience in itself. The castle is interesting and has lots of artefacts from a Genoese explorer. Thoroughly enjoyed at, the views are great too.

Definitely worth a visit (and a good opportunity to use the lift from near the train station to go under ground through the hill to get there). The castle is now a museum which is ok. Views outside in the gardens and from some of...More

As others have mentioned, this attraction starts with the ascencore (lift) which is a short walk from the central railway station in Genoa. it firstly goes sideways for about 1/4 mile before moving upwards - completely automated and almost an attraction in its own right!...More

It may be that William Randolph Hearst was inspired by the decor of Castello d'Albertis for parts of Hearst Castle's decor. This is much smaller, but much faster and easier to get through which made it easier to appreciate. Besides the decor and interesting architectural...More

Interesting building and small but pretty wooded area around the building. We couldn't go in as it was closed for a private function, but worth a visit just to walk around the grounds. The most fascinating part was taking the combined funicular/elevator from Via Balbi.
