  • beautiful route, little frequented. Maybe the climate was not conducive, I will return in the summer to enjoy better the place

  • It is the symbol of Genoa, but say that is an interesting excursion is telling a lie. It's inconvenient to reach, bad indicated and the municipality has never interested to enhance its potential. Too bad

  • Symbol of Genoa, always a pleasure to go and visit, we hope soon to close the coal that post down there is an eyesore but obscuring the beauty of this monument.

  • Very disappointing. The view is not bad but you don't have access to the top. In the middle of the tower there is a fence which bars the way. Also the "museum" is just one tiny room full of lightbulbs.
  • It is the symbol of the town. It is the highest lighthouse of all Europe. Built on 1543. Wonderful
  • With its seventy meters is the tallest lighthouse in the Mediterranean. It is the symbol of the harbor city of Genoa
  • We couldn't physically get to it...the road was closed, demolished actually (construction?) and there was a few small signs pointing down a back alley...but we arrived by car and there was nowhere to park! It was a main road! So we just kept driving....? You can sort of see it from afar but you may as well look on Wikipedia...
  • Lantern ", genovese in Lanterna de Zena or Lantern) is the capital of Liguria, the port town once called laSuperba or dominant of the seas. In addition to indispensable tool to night navigation of ships entering and leaving the port, the Lantern is also the symbol citizen, almost a totemalla Genoese spirit, and as such is part of city history. With its seventy-six meters is the tallest lighthouse in the Mediterranean and the second in Europe after the Île Vierge lighthouse in the département of Finistère, who in 1902 took off to the world record height of about five metres by crossing it. It is currently the fifth tallest lighthouse in the world and the second, always around to Île Vierge, between the traditional, which is constructed by the respective port authorities with the primary purpose of navigational aids. [4] Considered in its monumentality, which also includes the historic cliff on which it rests, reaches 117 meters high. The building consists of a tower on two rows of square section with a terrace at the top of each order. Built in its current structure in 1543, is also the third oldest lighthouse in the world among those still in business, after the Tower of Hercules, a Coruña Spanish city lighthouse and the lighthouse of Kõpu, the Estonian island of Hiiumaa.
