I have visited all three palaces that one can do with one ticket. They are all nice, contain some great architecture, paintings, great views. You would not spend too much time there, but it is a time well-spent

It is very nice to follow the street, admiring all the Rolli buildings. They are all different but all cool and interesting. Some have nice paintings on ceiling and walls, other just nice decorations, but it's a relaxing walk that I definitely recommend.

This street (Garibaldi) is certainly one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. Grand facades, gigantic hallways and theatrical staircases, they witness the banking and commerce social state ment of their owners. Some have free access, like the Town hall, some are museum, such as Bianco Palace, or Red PAlace or Spinola, some are shops like the one on... More

All these palazzi are amazing and beautiful, however Palazzo Rosso was my favourite. Personally my interest is in the architecture and frescoes, as opposed to artwork and collections, so I preferred Palazzo Rosso to Palazzi Bianchi and Tursi. Palazzo Rosso also has an amazing viewing platform on the roof which is a spectacular spot for panoramic city pics. I think... More

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
