"Quando mi sarò deciso
d’andarci in paradiso
ci andrò con l’ascensore
di Castelletto…"
(Giorgio Caproni, da “L’ascensore”)

From the amazing "balcony" hung above the historical center you can enjoy of a 360° view of the city and of the harbor.
The Belvedere Montaldo (spianata di Castelletto) enters in the Genoese wonder's list in 1910 with the photos of Alinari, that spread its beauty.
Up to the 1849 fortrees of Castelletto, just smoothed, because it could constitute a danger for the people in case of hostile occupation for the underlying city, nowadays it is a destination imperdibile to admire the roofs of the old houses of slate, the medieval towers, the Baroque domes and the harbor with its ancient memories and its modern ships.
