The original owner of this Castle had a spirit of adventure wherever he went; collecting artefacts from around the world. You can understand as you stroll through the museum how what he collected amazed the untravelled locals of his day. We paid €6 each and...More

Take the lift from the Via Baldi and relax in one of the few shady places in Genoa. The views alone are worth the effort, and the gardens add to the experience

The view of the castle from the outside was great, good for taking photos. Inside it has a lot of stuff, mainly collections of Captain Albertis from his travels. Not bad for an entrance fee of 4.5 Euros. It can be easily reached by bus.

We'd taken the unusual ascensore, walked up to the castle, enjoyed the views over the city, didn't go in the castle, but stayed for a very nice and good value lunch at the cafe.

Arrived via the unusual ascensore (funicular) to find this treasure perched atop the hill. Sadly it was a rainy day so our view was hindered. However, the gardens are worth seeing. We didn't get time to visit the Museum. There is a cafe there and...More

The gate would lead you to a trail up to the castle which provides a great vantage point. There are less tourists in the morning so i suggest one should come early.

We visited early morning as the sea mist was clearing, so had a good view over the western side of Genoa mostly the part area. The castle itself is more of a grand house, with each room designed to reflect the extensive travels by the...More

Perched way above Genova, but a relatively easy climb on foot from the downtown area, this castle is well worth exploring, even if the disparate displays of African and Asian artefacts won't be to everyone's taste or interest. Buy the 24 or 48 hour museum...More

We took the ascensore from Via Balbi - that was fascinating in itself, a mini tram which turns into a lift. It is free to walk around the small gardens of the Castello. The building is delightful as are the views. Nice place for a...More
