Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Concerning Paul review, he surely did not pay the ticket so when ticket inspectors asked him to show it and he did not have it they told him he bad to pay a fine.
There are tickets machines at the entrance of the lift.
Only for residents in Genoa the lift is free and in case of ticket inspectors you have to show your identity card to prove you live in Genoa.
Castelletto lift is worth to visit and the view of Genoa from abve is simply amazing!!

WARNING - STAY AWAY
This is a scam for tourists. They force you to pay €42 at the top or threaten arrest while the locals look on and smile. This is an extremely corrupt city, they don't deserve tourism... take your money elsewhere.

Fun little trip. Only 90c each. Nice cool corridor near via garibaldi leads to the actual lift. Lovely view from the top. Ticket machine by the door wasn’t working but there is another by the lift itself (and allows you to select English instructions 😀).

Genoa rises very steeply from the coast. This creates some fantastic vantage points for views over the city. However, the roads and pathways are very steep. The solution are Ascencor. They are generally lifts that rise vertically through the hill. Some are rail systems that rise at an angle up the tracks.

Use them to see more of the City.

The Ascensore di Castelletto is a public elevator, often used by local people.
It is connecting the center with the upper surrounding hills.
Enter at Piazza della Meridiana.
Buy a ticket for ± 1 euro, stamp the ticket in the red machine and take the elevator to the top level. You will have a great view of Genua. Well worth a visit!

For the people of Genoa it is very common to take this elevator, but for us this was really a unique experience. The Ascensore di Castelletto is a public elevator serviced by the AMT, the public transportation in Genoa. It is connecting the center with the neighborhoods on the surrounding hills. The entrance is at Piazza del Portello and looks like a common metro entry. You then have to walk through a tunnel of 300 meters before you arrive at the elevator itself. There are also the machines where you have to buy a ticket for 90 eurocent. You then stamp your ticket in the red machine and take the elevator to the top level. It takes a while because the elevator is more than 100 years old, but when you arrive, oh boy, you can enjoy a magnificent view of Genoa and its Port. It feels like you are in another part of the city, many people are relaxing on the many public benches under the trees. The center was warm, but here on the hill, everybody is enjoying the air. This part of Genoa is called Belvedere. Highly recommended!

An old elevator,built in 1909 that takes you into one of the most interesting vantage point of the town,Belvedere di Luigi Montaldo.From there you have wonderful views of the town and sea.
The other end is in Piazza Portello.

Nice place but the control staff should dedicate themselves to doing something else because they are not suited to being in contact with people. (Very rude, what a shame)

This beautiful Art Nouveau lift, inaugurated in 1929, overcomes a height difference of 61 meters and connects the Garibaldi Gallery (between Piazza del Portello and Largo Zecca) with the Spianata Castelletto, undoubtedly one of the most evocative panoramic points of the city.

It was renovated/restored in 2018 and is a pleasant attraction/service in the city

As already reviewed by other users, I would like to point out that the organization of this lift seems exclusively aimed at imposing sanctions. We enter in 2. On the left there is the totem we buy a ticket for 2 euros each. There is no validation device next to the totem. Long corridor no appliances. At the end of the corridor on the left are the 2 elevators. Nothing next to validate. Let's go up. Once we reach the top we turn into the tower and we don't find the device... but three guards waiting for us to fine us 42 euros each. One in particular is arrogant and treats us like criminals. Upon descent we then see that the validation machine is on the side opposite the elevators inside a niche which is not visible at all upon arrival. Foreigners after us were also sanctioned...obviously there was nothing written in English. Instead of placing 3 guards above to give fines, they should place one below to give directions to those arriving. A theft and a shame. BE CAREFUL!!!!
