Worth at least passing by and taking beautiful pics. This city is a beautiful old city which has a lot of beautiful architecture. We enjoyed just walking around and looking at all the beautiful monuments and buildings.

Spianata Castelletto A very enjoyable experience. Accessible by lift – tickets can be bought in various locations including the newsagents next to its entrance. The views over Genova are very good. We chose a mild morning, took our time and even enjoyed a little chat with the locals. A must see location when in Genova. Giorgio Federico If you find... More

Whether you get here by the #36 bus, the ascensore, or the funicolare, you're going to get an excellent view of Genoa from one of its prettiest parks. Bars and gelaterie abound, so you won't go thirsty either. Sunset is especially fine from here, but really, at any time of day - even in the rain - the view is... More

Accessed by a lift from near the palacio de Rossi, the views from the terrace are spectacular especially if you are lucky enough to visit on a clear day

Despite our hotel marking out where to take the elevators upto this viewpoint, we lost direction and stumbled into the Zecca-Righi funicular station. We eventually found our way, and a helpful local guided us to purchase tickets (under 1€ per ascent/descent) at an automated machine (which didn’t seem to have any English instructions) and validate them before we entered a...

When I was in Genova in early October, I went up Spianata Castelletto twice. The first time was on my first day there, I took the lift from Piazza del Portello (as recommended to me by locals - the cost to go up and down within 100 minutes is 1.5 euro) during the day. The panorama view of the city... More

This scenic lookout is fully accessible for the minimal price of the elevator ride (less than 1 euro). Finiding the entrance is a bit trickier. Fortunately, the concierge had circled it on the map and even with my minimal Italian I was able to get directions from a friendly local. We were advised to avoid rush hour. There were only... More

This is where you can see the center of Genoa and from the center see the beautiful surrounds and the Med. Many historic buildings

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.
