The views at the port are amazing and there is so much to do and see as you walk it! We spent two days there and still had things left to see!

I love the port. It's my go to destination in the city. It's a beautiful place to take in sunshine. Many of the docks have quiet benches with views. There are all of the museums, the lift, the lantern, the boats, the ferry, Eataly, street...More

There are several attractions inside the port and it's close to historical quarters. Other than this, not much. There is no special view due to industrial parts around and there is huge traffic from suspended highway and nearby roads.
