Is ok we were here to await our cruise so weren't really wanting to do much but rest. But managed to get lost, sore feet wandering around the streets, found a great beauty therapist and had our nails polished, awesome!

The owners of these palaces lived "over the shop" so they could keep an eye on the port and enjoy a life style as well. Look into the huge open doors and admire the marble stairs with wild animals draped over the handrails. All in all a unique street scene when usually the wealthy left cities to build their palaces.

It is a beautiful street or at least what is situated in the street is beautiful. When walking the city you will surly come across it and you should walk down it and enjoy the wonderful architecture along the way. The walk returned us to a time gone by.

We walked all the way up and down Via Garibaldi in the morning before going to catch a train, and we were not rushed at all. We had cappuccinos at a nice place and took a lot of beautiful photos. I think the beauty of Genoa is underrated but this was a beautiful walk.

It is a beautiful street to walk though I can say it of many streets in Genoa. But that one houses the most famous palazzios. We spent hours walking the city without any navigation just for the sake of it. You can feel the city better that way. Enjoy Genoa but visit Via Garibaldi for sure!

A magnificent road steeped in history - the size of the doors, the carvings, the painted ceilings seen through the courtyards and the exquisite chocolate shops, jewellers and cafes make this a wonderful walk from end to end. It transports you back to the times when great ships arrived from unknown lands bringing spices, stories, animals, foods and, most importantly... More

Via Garibaldi didn't impress me, maybe because Genova didn't impress much. The street is nice, the palaces are nice, but sorry didn't do much for me. It will take you 5 minutes to walk through, so no reason to miss it. It's never far. Cafe Baribaldi is nice.

If you're into a bit of history and you're interested in how the rich lived in early Genoa, visit this street. It doesn't take long to walk along it and there are a few buildings you can enter, we were there on Boxing Day so most places were closed, but it's definitely worth a look. Beautiful frescos in the Deutch... More

I have only a little free time (3 hours) to see at least a small part of Genova. The wreck of Costa Concordia was not within a walking distance. A lady at the reception desk suggested me a small circle through Via Garibaldi towards the Harbour and then back near the Cathedral. I made a terrible mistake not prepare myself... More
