If you're into a bit of history and you're interested in how the rich lived in early Genoa, visit this street. It doesn't take long to walk along it and there are a few buildings you can enter, we were there on Boxing Day so most places were closed, but it's definitely worth a look. Beautiful frescos in the Deutch... More

I have only a little free time (3 hours) to see at least a small part of Genova. The wreck of Costa Concordia was not within a walking distance. A lady at the reception desk suggested me a small circle through Via Garibaldi towards the Harbour and then back near the Cathedral. I made a terrible mistake not prepare myself... More

Via Garibaldi is an old street full of very old historical buildings (Rolli buildings, Unesco Heritage). You can see them by outside but is necessary to go inside to discover how beautiful they are!

We walked along the via Garibaldi and were amazed at the beauty amd workmanship of the buildings. We also went into the three museums that are on the street. Pairings by the master artists of the times are hung at eye level so you can really see them. It is a must see when visiting Genoa.

nice street to walking and watching around. the street is full of palaces and historical places. you don't want to end up this street while you are walking. also there is a foccaccaria in the end of the street which is you must try espicially the one with the oil.

Some of the palaces are open to visitation (and a few do not charge the visit like the building housing the Commercial Association of Genoa). The red palace displays free information about the street. The small street (medieval) behind Via Garibaldi also deserves a visit, because it was the main street before the construction of Via Garibaldi.

As a tourist taking in the street, it's quite interesting. But if you were to ask me to pinpoint one particular structure or building that's the focal point I honestly wouldn't be able to tell you. If you have time, its worth checking out there. Still, I would recommend to visit it.

A bustling street filled with atmosphere and plenty of opportunities to spend big bucks. We were there on a Saturday. . . wedding photos at every corner.
