These three palazzi are simply gorgeous and a must see in Genoa. There are a lot of important painters and breathtaking masterpieces (such as the marvellous Canova's la Maddalena Penitente). However, I would suggest to visit them only to people who are interested and know something about art/paintings, otherwise you are not able to appreciate them (obviously). I'm saying this... More

The title says it all. These are amazing buildings with a great view over the city and fantastic furnishings and some terrific tromp l'oiel. The paintings are a lot of early Christian tales illustrated with white people in renaissance clothing.

I was disappointed in these museums except for the excellent opportunity to ride to the roof for a panoramic view of the city and harbour of Genoa. The "three" museums are integrated, but you can opt out of various parts. We thought the paintings rather bland, mostly artists local to Liguria, and not attractively hung against a bleak white background.... More

We paid 9e each for the visit to the three palazzos od Rosso, Bianco and Tursi. We are not greatly into paintings so the best parts were the period furniture on level 3 of Palazzo Rosso and the rooftop views of the city - take the lift on level 3 to level 9. We also were there late on a... More

Straddling three Palazzos,the visit of this Museum is akin to a treasure hunt. The best segments are in the Palazzo Bianco and the Palazzo Rosso . The latter also includes and incredible roof top view of the city literally not for vertigo inclined visitors. The Palazzo Tursi portion is harder to discover,follow the red arrows. The buildings themselves are wonders... More

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
