The street has nice buildings along it but we found it was hard to get a nice photo of it as well as there isn't much to do along it apart from walk up and down it.

It's a nice street because it has some very nice and interesting buildings some history obviously however you can't see very much from the street so have to walk into courtyards and gardens, up stairs, around fountains and over things to appreciate the lay of the land so to speak. Much of that is blocked or looks too official (with... More

I got to see the houses of the old rich people of Genoa. I heard they did some remodeling or something in order to maintain the quality of the place and to get tourists and locals to visit. It’s a small space that’s enough for a small crowd but during its prime days, it was the place to be. A... More

The palazzo's here do show the history of Genua. They must have earned lots of money. Some of them were given to the city and now house the city hall and a museum. Beautiful.

This narrow old lane is entwined with history. We strolled though the lane listening to the history of the Great Garibaldi who united Italy. A peep into the old manisions along side gives a glimpse of the rich italian heritage of art and sculpture.

We picked up Walking tour guide book from the hotel and found it easy to navigate and the book very informative. Titled the 'pocket guide to Genoa' it provided all we needed for a one day walking tour.

This is an Unesco street lined with Baroque palaces. Many are open to the public. It is a good way to see how the 1% ers of the 17 and 18 th century lived.

The street itself was under reconstruction, i.e. noisy, dirty, and overall, it is hard to appreciate the palaces, since the street is pretty narrow. Not all of the palaces are reconstructed, although some of them are really nice, it's hard to get a full impression of the street.
