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

We arrived in Genoa from Rome by a late train in mid-September 2016. It was a Sunday evening and the local staircases (Salita Molini and Salita di San Francesco) leading up to the Belvedere from the Via Cairoli were closed, probably because of the late hour, although it was still daylight. Anyway, we chose to walk through the Galleria Garibaldi... More

Worth at least passing by and taking beautiful pics. This city is a beautiful old city which has a lot of beautiful architecture. We enjoyed just walking around and looking at all the beautiful monuments and buildings.
