The construction of a cable way linking Genoa’s forts Park to the sea is a suitable solution to overcome height differences in a short time. In 12 minutes the cable car allows the ascent from the Stazione Marittima (cruise terminal of the Port of Genoa, near the railway station - Piazza Principe) to Forte Begato that is part of the Parco delle Mura. With an extension of 617 hectares the Park includes some military buildings built between the seventeenth and 19th century . The departure station of the cable car, near the Stazione Marittima, will be an opportunity to relaunch these wild heights offering opportunities for hikes and day trips with a focus on history and nature. The cableway will also reach the district of Lagaccio and the former Gavoglio military barracks where a programme of requalification has been undertaken by the Municipality.
