This is a lovely palace in Genoa and well worth visiting. We were there on the first Sunday of the month and so entry was free (usually 5EUR). The rooms are beautiful and well presented. As other reviewers have mentioned - the mirror room and the private chapels are particularly lovely. They have done a wonderful job of upkeep given... More

One of the most beautiful palaces I have ever visited. Every single room you walk into is just absolutely breathtaking. One after the other just gets better. The price for this Palace is 4e which is more than worth it. You must visit this place when in Genoa.

Well worth a visit - splendid rooms are well presented. The hall of mirrors is breathtaking. Don't miss the rooftop terrace.

I agree with your reviewer Caroline T. From the terrace I imagine the wealthy viewing their ships being unloaded. They certainly "lived over the shop" in those days! I missed the mirrored room first time around and had to retrace my steps, thank goodness I did.

Only the top floor is open, but watch the video before you walk around the rooms - its well worth it. Make sure you visit the Terrace too.

The best view of the palace is from the terrace which you can reach once within the palace. It also has pretty decent collection of paintings, furniture

In what is kind of considered a dumpy city, there is rich deep history of art, commerce, and the birth of the imagination that led to the founding of the new land across the expanse of water that floated Christopher Columbus to the New World. What makes this Palazzo unique is that there have only been three owners in the... More

A gorgeous old building in Genoa. You must visit it if you go there. It's just breathtaking, so much art and some rooms were unbelievable, such as the mirror room. Unfortunately I couldn't visit the garden as there was a bad weather but I've been told that it is worth visiting!

The art work is on the top floors so if that's what you want, go straight up there otherwise you will spend hours going through the palace rooms which are interesting but the artwork is rather heavy going.

One of the highlights of our stay in Genoa was a visit to the Museo di Palazzo Reale. Construction of the Palazzo began in 1618 and was enlarged after being bought by the Durazzo family in 1677. The entire second floor of the palazzo is open to the public, including the very impressive Hall of Mirrors. Artwork on display includes... More
