We took a walking tour of Genoa. Sundays at 10am there is an English tour! Meet at the ticketing office near the Aquarium. Do not wait at the "I" tourist information kiosk, we did, and almost missed the tour. $12 Euro. with it free entrance to the three Musei di Strada Nuova museums! There is a gift shop too! Admire...

On the one rainy day of our stay, we went to Genoa to see some museums. We started at the Palazzo Rosso and ended up spending a couple of hours there. The art collection was huge and very beautiful. Even the ceilings had paintings (murals?) on them in many of the rooms. The ticket for the Palazzo Rosso also gets... More

The museums along Via Garibaldi are known collectively as the 'Musei di Strada Nuova' - the individual buildings are the Palazzo Bianco, Palazzo Rosso and Palazzo Tursi. You have to buy your entry ticket (valid for all three) from the bookshop between Bianco and Tursi before trying to enter any of the museums. There's an excellent cafe at the Rosso.... More

The art collection was interesting (but I must admit, not entirely captivating to a non-art-connoisseur), the interiors on the higher floors were fantastic, but the true highlight for me was the elevator to the rooftop, where you have an amazing 360degree view of the city. Probably one of the highlights of my time in Genoa. Entrance fee was 8E for... More

An eclectic art collection, beautifully restored rooms, and the wonderful view from the rooftop, makes this a must see! The highlight was when a guard opened a solid door and left us alone in a library where Paganini's violin and violin case was displayed. Guides direct you through the labyrinth of rooms and exhibits. Reasonable entry fee adds to the... More

Not so rich as Pallazo Rosso or Pallazo Reale, but still a palace for you to visit. Don't miss this one either. Actually, if you visit Pallazo Rosso, they are connected and you go from one to the other. Beautiful too.

A palace showing you how was the life in Genoa in the past. Many rooms and wonderful exhibits. Don't miss the upper terrace from where you can have a wonderful view of Genoa from the top.

A single ticket will get you entrance to both the Palazzo Rosso and the Palazzo Bianco. Bianco's big attraction in the art collection. Frankly, I was disappointed because much of the collection is by artists of modest talents and the singe Caravaggio was on loan to another museum. There are also a couple of Reubins on display. As in many... More
