An incredible 360° view
The Bigo panoramic lift was designed by the Genoese architect Renzo Piano. It offers a fantastic view of the old town centre, one of Europe’s largest and richest in arts.
The lift is equipped with an audio system and boards in Italian, English, French and German illustrating steeples, towers and characteristic slate roofs, together with modern and old buildings, emerging from the maze of allays (known as “carruggi”). The explanations about the history of the area of the Old Port and the town centre are accompanied by a pleasant background music.
