Vertical Genoa: from Spianata Castelletto to Carmine neighbourhood

An unusual perspective to discover the Superba

An evocative route to experience the thrill of Vertical Genoa and its unusual means of transport, such as the Liberty-style lift of Castelletto - mentioned by the famous Giorgio Caproni in one of his poems - and to enjoy incredible views of the city and its port.

Besides the charm of the city from above, you will experience the magic of the Carmine neighbourhood! In an up and down of “creuze” and narrow streets, you will reach the famous district, a rural context of the past centuries unusually located in the heart of the city, characterized by tiny squares and alleys with unusual and evocative names. Special corners, where time seems to have stopped.
