The Palazzi dei Rolli is a group of palaces in Genoa, northern Italy.

On July 13, 2006, forty-two of eighty subscribers to 'Palazzi dei Rolli' or rolls' palaces were entered by the special committee UNESCO meeting in Vilnius (Lithuania) between the members. About 10 million euro was spent on their restoration in the 1990s with the use of public and private capital.

On January 20, 2007, a plaque was placed by UNESCO at the beginning of Via Garibaldi on the grounds that it inserts the description of Palazzi dei Rolli within the world heritage listing:

The largest homes, various in shape and distribution, that were chosen at random in the lists (rolli) to host visits of state. The buildings, often built on sloping land, formed of a stepped atrium - courtyard - staircase - garden and rich interior decorations, express a singular social and economic identity and commencement of modern age urban architecture in Europe.

Along the Corso Garibaldi pedestrian road you can admire the most beautiful elegant buildings of the city, one of those amazing buildings is the so called "Palazzo Dei Rolli", even watch it from the road you can see the beautiful porches and the classy picturesque facade. Definitely worth a visit around here just to appreciate this architectural art.

The price charged for these three palaces is really very good value. Be sure you allow a whole day for them. Trying to do anything else the same day will mean skimping on all the sights inside or dropping from exhaustion. We went twice and only scratched the surface.

Genova is blessed with many beautiful palazzi dei Rolli. If you only have a short amount of time, walk down via Garibaldi. You will see the facades of the different palazzi on both sides. You can get a little peak into the foyers of some of the palazzi like the one that is now home to Deutsche Bank. If you... More

The star attraction of Genoa is these Palazzi and their contents of frescoes and paintings - not to be missed. I had the extra joy of free admission at the "Open House" weekend which took place during my stay. In particular Via Garibaldi is spectacular.

The Rolli are a system of noble palaces that have been preserved by Unesco. Most of them still belong to their familes and can be visited from the outside. Some others are ooen as museum and art galleries. The most beautiful one is Palazzo Spinola di Pellicceria in the historical town ( close to Piazza dell'Annunziata, ask for directions) where...

A must in Genoa just stroll down the street and if you have a spare couple of hours go inside the museums, if you are stuck for time however go to palazzo reale instead as its a lot better value for money.
