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.

to see this street and visit some of the buildings is worth a trip to genoa on its own. the renaissance and gothic palaces arte breath taking and the art and furniture collections most diverting. antichi giardini is worth a visit (here's hoping our luigi 14 mirror arrives in due course).

It always takes long me to pass via Garibaldi. Too many things to watch, examine and enjoy. My first time in Genoa, I did not have much time. I had a chance to see Via Garibaldi and few more places, but this street made me come back again to Genoa.

Not sure what all the fuss is about, seen many better and to be honest it bored me... once we ventured off down the tiny cobbled streets it was far more interesting with lots of tiny plazas a very traditional cafe bars

A relaxed and nice stroll along the palazzi, most of which can be visited. Really worthwhile to step inside and admire the courtyards. Beautiful !!
