“Worth the walk”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

We took trip advisors advise on this one,and made the walk to this viewing point ,it was well worth the effort because it was an amazing view and we got some really great pictures.
We were due to join our cruise ship later in the day and we could see it from this point.
Some went up in the lift but if you want to walk off your breakfast it's with the effort.

“Panoramic view”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Good panoramic sights over the old and new port and the city. Access is by lift using the standard 100 minute transit ticket. The entrance is a little bit tricky to find, but for photographers it's a very good point

“Worth the view”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

A little hard to find. Easiest from Via Garibaldi...worth the views. Wonderful. Panoramas of the city. Park benches and map that highlights the key structures...domes and towers of the city. Lovely.

“Easy vista”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Good panoramic views over the port and the city. Access is by lift using the standard 100 minute transit ticket. If you don't spend your 100 minutes here use the ticket to ride the Funiculaire Sant Anna from the other corner of Piazza del Portello.

“Nice views without any effort”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

There aren´t many places in the world which could offer you really nice views on the city without having to pay a lot of money or having to wait for hours or having to walk kilometers on the hill. But this terrace offers you exactly this without any effort for free. All you need to do is to find it on a map and reach it - on foot or taking a lift. In a couple of minutes you could admire nearly all the beauties of Genoa.
Don´t miss some gelateria/cafe which are positioned right behind the terrace (in the streets on the same level) and enjoy the views with an ice-cream. Thus it becomes absolutely perfect.
