  • We went around declaimed Gizeh Castelletto. The glance out of Genoa is definitely impressive and enjoyable though I expected a quaint place. More typical. Nice is nice, but not breathtaking. Here's. We enjoyed a nice ice-cream I with my wife and kids enjoying some Sun observing Genoa from above. To visit.

  • We arrived to the sunset, climbing by the elevator (which there are that pay). From above, you have a magnificent view of the sea and the port of Genoa. Its neighborhoods and its hills. Is a point panoramic where it stops the time of the city.

  • Just 90 cents at the elevator door square there leads to the viewpoint of the Châtelet. The entrance hallway looks a little at certain stations the oldest of the London underground. You enter the elevator cabin, climb and then a few seconds the doors open the panorama of the city, from the Lantern to the La everything is there in front of me. Worth then walk along the Esplanade of Castelletto (so called), a pedestrian path almost exclusively offers other glimpses while you are returned to the level of the Center.

  • 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.
