A UNESCO listed location, this promenade allows you to admire and visit a number of incredibly beautiful Renaissance palaces in town. So beautiful they look like theatre props, they also enclose wonderful cloisters and terraced gardens. Really unique!

Nice to walk around but there was a better preserved palace just round the corner near the continental hotel. That gave you a better impression of what these places were like.

The 3 palazzi museums - Rosso, Bianco and Tursi - all part of the Palazzi die Rolli are located on one of the best streets in Genoa, the Via Garibaldi. All three buildings are museums, run mainly as art galleries. One ticket buys entrance to all three palazzi. Palazzo Rosso is the largest of the three with 6 floors and... More

This is a lovely street to stroll down through -- not to be missed. The different palazzi are a treat to behold. Some have been lovingly restored while others are decaying. The visitor gets a good sense of the wealth that was concentrated in the hands of the privileged in Genoa.

My partner and I decided to visit the palaces during our day trip in genoa. The tickets are 9 euro per person and allows you into both bianco, trusi and rosso. We found bianco and tursi to be quite plan and didn't spend as much time in it as we did rosso. Rosso was beautiful with amazing paintings on the... More

If you buy the combined ticket, go to the Palazzo Bianco first, then the Rosso. The flow of the presentation of the art history makes more sense in that order. No one at the ticket booth offered any guidance and you could see them in random order. The Palazzo Rosso has a fabulous overlook of the city center from the... More

Another one great Palace in Genoa. Genoa is full of excellent architectural monuments. Walk arround the hole town to discover them. No wonder the whole town is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just strolling in the city center and discovering more and more historical palazzos is a pleasure. I'd recommend to go there at the very end of May when the Rolli Days are taking place (check the internet) - some of the - privately owned- palazzi are open to public. And even if you don't (ou can't) go in, just don't... More
