  • Only the elevator, that from the heart of Genoa's door at the Esplanade, deserves. When you come here you open a view of the city that just flying like a Seagull might have. Those not in Genoa, in addition to various architectural wonders, you'll realize the diversity of the roofs of the "Superba" all made of slate, a rare peculiarity which differentiates it from other cities. If you then add an ice cream shop with outdoor seating, it deserves a nickname as the city (superb), the day is complete and fulfilling in all respects.
