Worth putting aside a few hours to visit the Musei di Strada Nuova - 3 interlinked palazzos with fabulous architecture and some truly great works of art (Rubens, Veronese, Durer, Strozzi, Avercamp, Caravaggio, Van Dyck many lesser known but extraordianry Genoese artists...) Stunning.

Via Garibaldi is probably the best known street in Genoa and is well worth the visit. Take your time, enjoy the architecture, stroll around and enter some courtyards for even better experience.

I'll start by saying - I am an architecture liver and yes, this is indeed a very nice (if not very long) little street, with some very nice old palazzi. For a few of them you can go into the courtyard for a bit of a bigger view, and I believe that several had tickets you could buy to go... More

No wonder Via Garibaldi is considered to be one of the most beautiful streets in Italy. The buildings and the courtyards are simply spectacular. Genova, named the Mistress of the Sea, is a hidden treasure and is well deserved to be visited

To discover a town, you need to walk. Don't miss this street full of ancient palazzo's. Now the mayority is occupied by banks. But also walk along Via XX Septembre ! You will meet very nice buildings occupied by shops......Zara, H&M , and others. Very intresting buildings believe me. Walk as long as there are ancient buildings and take the... More

Street "Number One" in the City. Buildings of grandeur, some of which you can walk into their entrance halls that are spectacularly decorated. All shapes and sizes with the majority well preserved. Having wandered the narrow cobbled streets before coming into this one, I guess we admired it more. So much so that we sat outside a café and had... More

The pedestrian only street was wide and it had the wonderful palaces from the past. Some are converted into museums. Well worth strolling down this beautiful street.

Take the time to stroll down this street. It's pedestrianized so no fear of being mown down by a moped while you stand and admire. Sit and have a coffee, people watch and take time to wander into the courtyards. Some of the properties are official buildings while others amazingly were private residences, one had a fountain/waterfall in the courtyard... More

ID: 273692853 Via Garibaldi in Genoa (Italy, Europe) is a pedestrian area, in a central position, where you will find ancient noble buildings now hosting Banks and ilocal Authorities. From this street, walking toward the sea (the Ancient Port) you will pass through a noticeable number of small and narrow roads (vicoli) the so called, in slang, "carruggi". All these... More

A beautiful little road to stroll down and enjoy the architecture. Stop and enjoy a coffee and watch people pass by or walk through some of the buildings open to the public.
