A beautiful stroll and a chance to enjoy some history and architecture at no cost. If you're looking to save a little, you can enter many of the buildings on a weekday as many operate as offices etc and you can enter the main courtyard to take photos. If you're looking to enter the museums, you'll need to pay a... More

This is a street of Renaissance and Baroque palaces. The owners of these were obliged to host state visits so the places were built very elaborate. Three of them are now a museum. You pay one fee for all three. There is some beautiful artwork, paintings, frescos etc. You can just stroll the street, wander the museums, stop for a... More

This street is in the heart of Genoa. It contains palaces built for the rich and famous of the 1600s, with exteriors in the most lavish style imaginable. Many of them are World Heritage buildings, and a number are open to the public. At many of them it's possible just to look around the entrance courtyards, and even chat up... More

We passed by this street with barely a glance first time, but on reading more of the area walked down and looked more closely at the individually beautiful buildings which have great insight into Genoa's wealthy past. Took every opportunity to peer into the courtyards where we could. Absolutely lovely.

This is by far the best street in town. The houses on both sides are all grand palazzi, three of which are museums (Palazzo Rosso, Bianco and Tursi) and the rest are either banks or privately owned. However, it is possible to enter many of the buildings and look at the decorations on the ground floor, so don't be afraid... More

The admission fee allows you in to all 3 palaces- the audio guide an extra 5 euro is also worthwhile and covers all 3 not just the Rosso- you have to leave a card or drivers licence to make sure u bring back the audio machine though ! Some excellent paintings in every period from top artists. Had a snack... More

Despite intense activity by heavily armed but very relaxed-looking Carabinieri whose vans partially blocked the street the day we were there, we enjoyed just meandering along past the great palaces that dominate the Via Garibaldi. So enjoy the walk and the views and the architecture and perhaps the shops and then head off down and do not miss the side... More
