Spianata Castelletto Viewpoint, Genova, Italy
Sensational “balconies” hanging on the Old Town with 360 degree views over the city and harbor. Exciting climb with the liberty lift.
“When I am determined
to go there in heaven
we’ll go with the elevator
of Castelletto …”
(Giorgio Caproni, from “The elevator”)
From here you can admire the roofs of the old houses slate, typical material in this area, medieval towers and baroque domes; in the distance the animated sea by modern ships and ancient memories. Like scenes, the heights of the city dotted with parks, villas, sanctuaries and crowned with forts.
