Bird's-eye view of Porto Antico
Built in 1992 for the Columbian Celebrations, the Bigo was designed to stylistically resemble the cranes that have been used for centuries to load and unload goods in the Genovese harbor. At a cost of only 4 euros, a trip up this'rotating glass elevator is a great way to get a panoramic view of the old port area. In the summer months, the Bigo stays open til 11pm - a gorgeous way to see the lights in the surrounding hillsides.
