  • _When you're in Genoa, one of the thing you see the most is the "lanterna", a lighthouse. It's a really nice and old lighthouse with a really particular architecture. Purpose what you may know is that you can visit it to the top (or the top left). You can not go everyday so try to get the opening days and hours. The way to go there is not that nice as the city is performing work on many parts of the road and Harbour. but once you're there you've got 360 ° view facing the city and the sea, and it s really nice. You'll have a "few" steps to climb to the top but it Worth it. Some pannels on the way teach you interesting things about the history of the place. When you visit Genoa, one of the first things you see is his Lantern. A very beautiful and old lighthouse at the remarkable architecture. What some do not realize is that it can be visited. Attention this is not open every day and at any time, I advise you to inquire about schedules before go you. The way to get there is not very nice because of the many work carried out by the city, but worth the visit. After a few steps (irony of course) to get to the top (or almost) you can see a great view at 360 ° on Genes and the sea. Along the way, once inside the lighthouse, many panels to tell his story.

  • Of course for those visiting Genoa a side trip to the monument symbol of Genoa can not miss. Not applicable to go there, or contradictory directions, the realm of filth and crackpots. Disappointingly, toccata and Fugue and much much sadness.

  • For some time we wanted to go to the Lantern. Access from the ferry terminal is closed for the usual wrangling municipality/highways/Government, the usual Italian scandal. After a tour blighted landscape of Culmv, in piazzale vecchiom venture we started the walk. Paid for the ticket, we had the opportunity to visit the Museum with a journalist of the Republic which he described the vicissitudes of the emigrants. Up at the first terrace we enjoyed a beautiful view of our city. Staff at the ticket office and at the entrance of the Lantern, very kind and personable, with a great desire to do and with an enthusiasm that surprised. Lovely afternoon indeed

  • 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.
