So I visited Genoa in January during the worst weather that you can imagine: cold winter rain with strong wind. Umbrella? Useless. All of a sudden walking in the rain we arrived on Via Garibaldi. Let me tell you that from then on i liked Genoa! The palaces and the buildings are amazing. You have the impression that from one... More

Since it was made a pedestrian precinct, via Garibaldi has become one of Italy's most stunning museum streets, lined on both sides by carefully preserved aristocratic palazzos, several of which house top museums and art exhibitions, as well as princely courtyards, grandiose marble staircases, famous monuments by Renaissance sculptors and much more.

Once called the “Strada Nuova” of the mid XVI century, it has also been called the “street of gold”. There are 14 former Renaissance and Barocque palaces here restored to their original splendour. These magnificent palaces now house immense collections of... More

Every meter is full of history, some of the most incredible buildings in Italy. Also wander the streets off of Garibaldi to experience the old Genova.

We went to Genoa during a weekend... Most of the commercial buildings and stores were closed. So, I recommend going to Genoa and spend at least one weekday.
