  • Really must visit for sightseeing. Marvelous views all over Genova city. Easiest way to climb this mountain is to take special elevator from down the hill up. Otherwise if you plan to have a walk up, then be ready for a 30-40 minute trip. But it is worth it. You can enjoy a lot more fine architecture and views while wandering around.
  • If you want to see most of Genova from uphill and enjoy the stunning view this is right spot. First time in Genova? You should definitely go there!
  • Best place for a good view of the city. It is a great place to visit during sunset.
  • Top three, if not the foremost place to go in Genova for a view. There are lifts to get to the top, but also winding stair heavy streets which I wouldn't miss if you can take the challenging 'hike'. Grab a coffee, a pastry and a newspaper from the bottom to experience it as the locals do. Offering views to Palazzo Bianco, Palazzo Rosso and of course via Garibaldi. TL;DR - if you go to Genova this is the most impressive and cheapest thrill. DO NOT MISS!
  • Fantastic viewing point of genoa. There is also a lift if you don't want to take the stairs. 90 euro cent for single ride.
