A very Italian

Via Garibaldi is a nice example of classic Italian architecture from the times, when price has not been the only criterion for construction. Nice palaces with inner gardens.

All the palaces of the immensly rich families who ruled the republic of Genova, which competed with Venice and ruled a large part of the Mediterraneum. Many are museums and open to the public. A visit is a lesson in history. The visit is a must if you are interested in history of this part of Europe.

I really wanted to visit this street and I'm glad I did, but I was expecting more commerce. Instead this street is dominated by Art Gallaries, and the Museums. Very pretty though.

beautiful street, old buildings on it are very impressive! necessarily need to recommend at least one day to walk on it. Very often on the street musicians play, which creates an unforgettable atmosphere of this place

Is ok we were here to await our cruise so weren't really wanting to do much but rest. But managed to get lost, sore feet wandering around the streets, found a great beauty therapist and had our nails polished, awesome!

The owners of these palaces lived "over the shop" so they could keep an eye on the port and enjoy a life style as well. Look into the huge open doors and admire the marble stairs with wild animals draped over the handrails. All in all a unique street scene when usually the wealthy left cities to build their palaces.

It is a beautiful street or at least what is situated in the street is beautiful. When walking the city you will surly come across it and you should walk down it and enjoy the wonderful architecture along the way. The walk returned us to a time gone by.

We walked all the way up and down Via Garibaldi in the morning before going to catch a train, and we were not rushed at all. We had cappuccinos at a nice place and took a lot of beautiful photos. I think the beauty of Genoa is underrated but this was a beautiful walk.

It is a beautiful street to walk though I can say it of many streets in Genoa. But that one houses the most famous palazzios. We spent hours walking the city without any navigation just for the sake of it. You can feel the city better that way. Enjoy Genoa but visit Via Garibaldi for sure!

A magnificent road steeped in history - the size of the doors, the carvings, the painted ceilings seen through the courtyards and the exquisite chocolate shops, jewellers and cafes make this a wonderful walk from end to end. It transports you back to the times when great ships arrived from unknown lands bringing spices, stories, animals, foods and, most importantly... More
