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

this isthe best place to observe all the roofs of the hisorical centre of Genoa. The best moment is the sunset during the clear winter afternoon, when itis not so impossible, when the sky is very clear, to see the profile of the Cosrsica island.

Best place to realize the layout of the city and its historical centre ; wide view of almost all the city ; a kind of balcony on the sky, perfect for good pictures ; also connected with an historical lift to the lower part ; a very pleasant area with a few very well known bars and cafes

We loved walking around Genoa, and enjoyed walking to the castle. The view wasn't what we expected, but maybe we didn't get to the right lookout point. I also wonder if we missed some info about getting into the castle. But we did like the walk down (we took the elevator up).

This is one of the most romantic and incredible spot in Genova. From the beautiful square you can admire the whole city. Panoramic and extraordinary. Highly recommended .
