Marina Molo Vecchio lets you disembark in the Porto Antico (Ancient Harbour), the most fascinating way to enter the city. This was where the first inhabitants had their landing place, more than 2000 years ago. Today, Genoa shows you her first beauty spots here. The Lanterna (Lighthouse) is the symbol of Genoa. It has watched over the entrance to the port since 1543. Today it can be reached on a public footpath and houses a museum. Behind it the city climbs the hillsides. The white structure of the Bigo (derrick) emerges from the sea in the middle of the Porto Antico scenario. One of its arms supports a panoramic lift which reaches a height of 40 metres and offers a 360° panorama of the city. The Magazzini del Cotone (Cotton warehouses) were used in the past to store the cargoes to be loaded onto ships. Today to recall those years there are only the cargo cranes on the wharf. Indeed, inside there is a multi-screen cinema, a conference centre, shops and restaurants. The Genoa Aquarium is the biggest in Italy. Every year it is visited by more than a million people.
