A part of history you should not miss

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.

Via Garibaldi it is one of the most beautiful streets of the city, not relatively far from the heart of the historic center. What is most striking walking along this road are beautiful buildings adorned with amazing finishes with a touch of elegance and aristocracy. I really appreciated that.

Via Garibaldi is where most of the famous palazzos are located. Many are worth visiting inside. Great gardens.

It's in the old part of the city. Enjoyable walk, interesting to see the architecture: quite a few shops on that street. Also a few restaurants.

This street, formerly known as Strada Nuova, is lined with palaces built in the 16th and 17th centuries for Genoa's leading families. Pick up a guide at the street's book store, which identifies each palace and provides historical information. Some of the palaces are now art museums.

It's a very nice street with beautiful houses and palaces lining the way. We visited palazzo rosso. The exhibit is quite boring. But the rooftop terrace is a must go. You get the best view over the city.

Thank freddsch
