It was my third attempt to get in, and finally I succeeded! Yeah! The view from the height of about 70 meters is awesome! You can see all the city with its ancient port, upper districts, sea port. Impressing history of La Lanterna is pushing...More

Impressive in size, not so much in architecture. Located in industrial area, so plan an additional hour for logistics alone and be prepared for some not-really-outstanding views. Interiors closed for visiting for most of the time, so check first and plan accordingly. Taking it all...More
