Good for a quick visit

The towers and old walls are interesting to see and makes for nice photographs. There are quite a few restaurants in the area if you want to spend more time.

The tower looks better from the outside, no point of paying 5 euro to go inside - there are plenty of old parts of the city to go see the interior of Old and historic, worth a picture outside

Nice view and that is it. Price for the towers is too much, 5 euros, and you can only enter at a certain time. The view is not worth the money, and the towers look better from outside anyway. If you have some extra money go and see it, but do not expect much ;) .

We took the Hop on- Hop off bus tour in the city with 8 stps and this one one of them. Just good enough to see from the bus with the guide mentioned through the earphones provided by the tour.

Because I enjoy antiquity, I liked this site. Still it is quickly absorbed. Look and move on, there's more to see.

My small town has more interesting medieval towers. Really average for any town, was expecting more.

It is a gate leading to nothing, as I went there the gate may have been majestic and old but I would only recommend this gate to history lovers as it is not exciting at all. As much as I love Genoa I unfortunately must give this 2 stars as a gate like this one should either lead to somewhere... More

The total time on porta soprana and Christopher Colombus house was 20 minutes. You buy the tickets at Colmbus house. Porta soprana house opens at 11:30. Employee must accompany you to the top.

Majestic 12th century gate, also known as Porta Sant’Andrea. Be sure to visit the Cloister of Sant'Andrea, a hop, skip and jump away.

Felt back to the Medieval period when through the Medieval twin towers! It takes only a couple of minutes from Columbus' house. Starting to get to old town from the towers.
