All reviews granita via garibaldi don paolo wonderful panorama public elevator vertical city sweeping views great view of the city steep streets degree view an ice cream old town gelateria worth a trip on foot well worth the effort garibaldi street
This is a must seen attraction, you can either get there by an elevator or take a walk from Via Garibaldi. I will recomend the walk since it has more of a city feeling, but it is a very steep 10 minutes. Once you are...More
We decided to walk up to the top.
We got a little lost on the way as Genoa can get confusing due to lifts etc
We were stopped by some locals who pointed us in the direction of the steps. Bit of a drag up...More
Only a short walk from the waterfront and well worth the effort. We’ve travelled to many places built on hillsides but haven’t seen anything quite like this historic elevator...perhaps slightly quirky/similar to the escalator in Barcelona. Genoa is called “the vertical city” and it’s easy...More
We took the two-stage underground funicular to within a few steps of this rich man's vanity project, filled with mock medieval posturings but dating back little more than 100 years, and that was an experience in itself.

Then spend a couple of days on the coast (S. Marg) with a visit to Portofino. Flying into Milan(MXP) early Tuesday morning then taking the night train (22:23) from Milan Centrale Saturday night to France. Can someone tell me if it is possible to see all of these things or should I eliminate something. Let me know...More

I would stick with just Milan and Lake Como and cut out Genoa and Santa Margherita Ligure. You have only three full days plus two half days. The train ride to Santa Margherita Ligure is almost 3 hours which means you will lose a good part of two of your full days travelling.
