Lovely place high in the hills. You can acces it with the bus, but also with a little train. A more calm and peaceful place, big buildings, I think higher house prices too. A lot of elderly residents. Beautiful view of the city and a lot nice little food shops. I ate one of the Best chocolate broches over there!

Very nice getting there with the elevator (bus ticket requested). Yf you go there sunset time it will be magic. Ice creams and bars in the surroundings.

Well, well, this is a classic among Genoese people, but a truly amazing place for anyone loving the sea and the colors of Riviera. You can wander with your girlfriend, walk, run or take your time and stare at the sea. It may either be extremely relaxing, under the warmth of spring sun, or tough and exciting, when the wind...

In order to get there you have to take an elevator. It´s huge and costs some euros. All the experience starts from the tunnel you have to take in order to get the elevator. Once you are there, the view it´s amazing. You can see all Genoa from there 😍

There are many good restaurants and quirky little bars here. The views are outstanding - especially at sunset. We ate here most nights during our visit to Genoa and made sure we were there in time to admire the sunset each time. Sometimes drinks extended into dinner.

Great spot where to stop by if you don't have much time in the city, because this 180 degree viewpoint of it is in the very centre and easily approachable - by a lift (or foot obviously). One of the best viewpoints there is in Genova - sea, port, Garibaldi street, mountains. You can see it all.

No one should miss a sight from the "spianata". Go there by the lift or go up one of the ancient slopes climbing the hill, have a gelato and look as far as you can. Enjoy

Amazing panoramic view over the city. Struggled to find a free parking but once we got to the top everything was forgotten. It's fantastic
