We took the funicular from Zecco and walked around the corner to it, mainly because we couldn't find the lift! The views are stunning, especially looking down at the Via Garibaldi palaces.

After the long walk up steep streets, I was rewarded with sweeping views over the city. Too bad it was foggy the day I went! On a nice day with plenty of sun and blue sky, this park/terrace must be a great place to hang...More

Easy to access with the funiculars. You can see the most of the Genova bay from here and the whole old town. There is a very nice Gelateria on the top.

This is a must do activity in Genoa and easy to find. The view 360 degree view was really magnificent. Walked the shops and cafes. The locals were very obliging. Obviously pick your day to get the view and earlier in the day is better.
