  • A view to ward off looming thoughts ... Enlarges the heart can be practically in the heart of Genoa and get a complete overview and at the same time, so global.

  • The view is amazing and you can get a gelato at the historic ice cream shop called Guarino, or a coffee too or anything, since its a bar. You can also have a pint or a cocktail at Babylon pub or just rest with a view. I recommend this place for couples or families. Easy to get there: the quickest way is by escalator at "Piazza del Portello" or by stairs, for the more athletic ones ;) see ya
  • Easy to access, but not the best panoramic view. If you're not afraid of stairs, you can go to bus stop near Residenza San Camillo (44°25'05.53''N 08°56'26.38''E).
  • From here you can see probably the best panorama of the town. You can arrive here from the Stazione Principe using bus 36 or from the center using the lift
  • This place offers a Beautiful view of Genoa from above. its a palce to watch the sunset or just to sit down ad admire the city, around this place there are really great icecream shops that you can eat while you relax.
  • Great views of the city and surroundings! A must-do for Genoa, but only on a sunny day
