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

If you don't have much time, go at least to the Palazzo Bianco to see the Caravaggio painting. It is really worth. Lots of good flemish paintings also in the Palazzo Rosso

Genoa is the only place we've been to - maybe the only place there is - to have had the system of 'palazzi dei rolli' (grand private palaces listed on a state register, which offered hospitality to visiting dignitaries at the owner's expense - the original hotels, allegedly). They are identified on the city map as UNESCO-protected - having blue... More

There are a total of 42 palaces but most of it are privatised. 3 nearby palaces to the information centre are worth going to if you love to see the place.2 of the most famous is the palazza rosso and bianca. We did not have time to visit the palaces though, and taking photography outside the palaces is sufficient too.

A visit to the great late sixteenth-century palaces of the most influential Genoese families is a delight, with their great collections of paintings (in addition to Italian-Ligurian paintings, there are excellent Dutch and Flemish paintings), ceramics, and furniture. The Red and White palace both belonged to the Brignole-Sale family who - noblesse oblige - left them and all their art... More
