Sunset over the Mediterranean
Perched high above the old port, Castello D'Albertis boasts some of the most gorgeous panoramas of the ancient town and the old port. On most days, you can spot every single cruise ship in harbor, too. While there is a public elevator (ascensore, in Italian) that takes you up (catch it on Via Balbi), you can also climb the stairs (and burn off some of your focaccia calories!). Find the stairs just after the abandoned Cathedral on Via Balbi - and then just keep walking up!
