Fun little trip. Only 90c each. Nice cool corridor near via garibaldi leads to the actual lift. Lovely view from the top. Ticket machine by the door wasn’t working but there is another by the lift itself (and allows you to select English instructions 😀).

Up and down

Genoa rises very steeply from the coast. This creates some fantastic vantage points for views over the city. However, the roads and pathways are very steep. The solution are Ascencor. They are generally lifts that rise vertically through the hill. Some are rail systems that rise at an angle up the tracks.

Use them to see more of the City.

well worth a visit - great view on Genua
Jul. 2016 • Family
The Ascensore di Castelletto is a public elevator, often used by local people.
It is connecting the center with the upper surrounding hills.
Enter at Piazza della Meridiana.
Buy a ticket for ± 1 euro, stamp the ticket in the red machine and take the elevator to the top level. You will have a great view of Genua. Well worth a visit!

A unique experience in Genoa
Aug. 2015 • Family
For the people of Genoa it is very common to take this elevator, but for us this was really a unique experience. The Ascensore di Castelletto is a public elevator serviced by the AMT, the public transportation in Genoa. It is connecting the center with the neighborhoods on the surrounding hills. The entrance is at Piazza del Portello and looks like a common metro entry. You then have to walk through a tunnel of 300 meters before you arrive at the elevator itself. There are also the machines where you have to buy a ticket for 90 eurocent. You then stamp your ticket in the red machine and take the elevator to the top level. It takes a while because the elevator is more than 100 years old, but when you arrive, oh boy, you can enjoy a magnificent view of Genoa and its Port. It feels like you are in another part of the city, many people are relaxing on the many public benches under the trees. The center was warm, but here on the hill, everybody is enjoying the air. This part of Genoa is called Belvedere. Highly recommended!

An old elevator,built in 1909 that takes you into one of the most interesting vantage point of the town,Belvedere di Luigi Montaldo.From there you have wonderful views of the town and sea.
The other end is in Piazza Portello.
