Tips from locals
From the viewpoint you can enjoy a wonderful view across the city. It can be easily reached by lift as illustrated at the respective section
One of best magic landscapes of the city!! Must see!!! Located in Castelletto district. You have to take the Art-Nouveau style elevator running from Piazza Portello and for which you need a ticket bus.
A fabulous "balcony" suspended over the Historic Centre with a 360° view out over the city and the port. It can be reached both via the scenic Circonvallazione a Monte bypass and by the splendidly Art Nouveau lift that rises from Piazza Portello.
a beautiful view of the historic district of Genoa from the hill of "Castelletto"

Point of Interest
“Via Garibaldi, the "Strada Nuova" (New Street) dating to the mid-16th century, is also known as "la Via Aurea" (the Golden Street). With its beautiful palaces, it boasts some of the world’s most fascinating architecture. Opened after 1550, to gather the city's most important families into a single setting, it was originally called "Via Aurea" due to the splendour of its buildings, and then “via nuova delli palazzi” (the new street of palaces) until, at the end of the 1800s, the city decided to name it after Italy's national hero Giuseppe Garibaldi.Today the 14 buildings are home to the Town Hall, major banks, clubs, cultural groups, antique dealers, shops and public and private offices.

“Perfect for breakfats. It is actually at the square "Piazza Corvetto" on the right-hand side walking up Via Roma. Once at the top, Mangini is at the corner on the right”

“ this funicular provides a link between the city centre and its heights. The line is especially popular with hikers, cyclists (bicycles are carried) and families looking to treat themselves to a day trip out of town. The station of the Madonnetta deserves a special mention: it opens onto the Sanctuary of the same name, where you can admire a year-round Nativity scene depicting aspects of daily life in mediaeval Genoa.”
