Better to arrive on the elevator as it's public transportation and costs only a ticket. The view of Genoa is fantastic, the historical and new part as well. Sitting under the pinea trees on the banks in the shadow gives you a good rest while you are looking around and read.

We went up on the elevator. Only 1.50 euro / ticket. Beautiful views and you can really contrast the medieval part and the modern. At first we used the funicular but this takes you somewhere else

You can reach Spianata Castelletto or taking the elevator (recommended for its beautiful) or walking along the streets ... in any case you will be rewarded upon arrival! The view is simply wonderful!

Excellent views of the city in all directions. If you don't have a problem with a little thesis strolling go on foot in the opposite use the lift because it is quite difficult to come up.

This place has the best view of Genoa. It's a bit of walk but your GPS should take you straight there and when you get there it will all be worth it! You literally get a 360 degree view of Genoa. You can go twice since the tickets is valid all day so go by day and then by sunset... More

You can see all the Genoa's Centro Storico from this place, and now I know why; because originally there was a small castle, from which the French, which in the past centuries (mainly XV and XVI), occupied Genoa, could see it. Now the place has no more Castle, and still you can see all Genoa's Historical Center. There you don't... More
