Every city needs to be seen above but that elevator is not in harmony with the city I think. It's not ugly but in the wrong place.

You can go up with Bigo and it offers a nice view over Porto Antico and the city. Went there after dinner and there were only few people there.

The view from Bigo is not as stunning as some rooftop views or from the top of Castelleto Spianata but still worth seeing. Put your camera against the glass when takin pictures to avoid that weird flashback effect

Il Bigo let you see the area 360 degrees. You can enjoy the great view of the harbor on one side and the hills on the other side. No air condition inside !

The Bigo is a great way to see the old harbor and hillsides. It is right next to the aquarium, and if you walk up the promenade a little ways (east) away from the aquarium you'll find two playgrounds. A good break for the kids!

Il Bigo is a capsule that is situated on the quayside of Genoa which is raised into the air to provide a view over the city. The trip lasts around 10-15 minutes. It doesn't rotate but that doesn't matter as you can walk around and...More

In an area of shops, a nice square and Eataly, what's not to like about a centerpiece like Il Bigo? Restaurants for all tastes and budgets, some set scenically on the marina, it's a great place to visit.
