“A good work-out for lunch !”

Spianata Castelletto
Ranked #5 of 286 things to do in Genoa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 8, 2014

Walking up to the Spianata Castelletto made having lunch there very worthwhile. We might have taken the lift up but gave up trying to work out exactly what ticket we needed to buy !

It is one of the best places in town to watch at the sunset. Take the public lift to go up from piazza Portello, and once in Spianata castelleto don't miss a chocolate icecream at Guarino, they are not the nicest but the ice-cream is very good.

this is the best point of the Genova that you can watch the city.
there are some cafes and reastaurants in there for rest. also there are some banks to just sit and watch.

this is a good option when you need to breath and run away from crowdedness of city.
you can buy a gelato,sit in the bank and just watch.

espicially if you are with your bfriend/girlfriend,place is becoming more romantic.

must see.

Coming into Genoa, and faced by tall pallazi, one sometimes forgets that this is a city built on the slopes of a considerable hill. The viewpoint from Castelletto gives one a wonderful panorama of the city, at a minimal - or even no if one has a 24-hr travel card - cost, since one requires a local transport ticket. The speedy elevator takes you up above the house roofs, and gives you views over the Old Town and the Harbour, and down into the Ligurian Sea. It is also a jumping off point to explore the 'upper city', including taking the train or funicular up to the historic bastions.

Very interesting view from the top of Genova! A spectacular 360 surround that shows you how beautiful Genova is!
