While walking around the city we picked this street as it looked very interesting and it was. The homes, palaces, museums and municipal structures were all a piece of art. While in the Municipal Building we saw a wedding. Then we found a small café and had a cool drink watching others stroll along.

Via Garibaldi is one of the must visit streets in Genoa. Yes there are similar in other cities around the world, but when in Genoa, why not take the time to stroll in and around Via Garibaldi and take in the lovely little shops, bars, cafes, churches and simply enjoy the architecture. Via Garibaldi is as different by day as... More

We walked along the Via Garibaldi because of the different Palazzi. The houses there are really beautiful and you can visit different sights if you like. But also if you don't like museums, the street is really nice to linger in and just take a walk.

Do not get me wrong - it is a really beautiful street in an interesting town (would advise prioritizing Genoa above Milan). Nice architecture, in places not so tidy as you would expect. Definitely worth seeing, but as a part of a bigger package – in Italy the competition is strong enough that grading Via Garibaldi above average would fit... More

It's a nice street but then, compared to some of the dark alleys that surround it, it is always going to look good by comparison! I'm being a little harsh - it has got some interesting distractions and we found a nice little coffee shop to enjoy a sit down. It also benefitted from being about the only street in... More

You can't leave Genoa without having walked along Via Garibaldi. The old historical buildings (Palazzi dei Rolli) are beautiful and you can enter a few courtyards as well.

This is also must see place in Genoa, but only when you have time for it. 30 minutes will be enough.

An old street with many churches and restaurants. A usually crowded place but a must see in Genova. Centuries of history and old palaces to visit.

A great street to walk in both at daytime and nighttime in Genoa. Lot of nice shops and restaurants along the path. Also the architecture in this street / area is worth a visit.
