As on of the Palazzo Rolli, this gives you quite an idea what the visiting dignitaries could have expected on their visit to Genova. The hall of mirrors alone is worth the visit. Easy to while away a couple of hours wondering from room to room and in the gardens. The massive flyover that dominates the area around the port... More

We spent a half day visiting the Palazzo Reale and the Galleria Nazionale di Palazzo Spinola. While we enjoyed both we really loved the Palazzo Reale. This palace really shows you how the inhabitants lived with authentic and beautiful furnishings, frescos, and artwork. We were also lucky enough to tour it with a guide who spoke perfect English and was... More

Only the second floor is open but it is worth the visit at 4 euros. Stunning paintings on walls and ceilings - lots of gold!! Information boards in each room in English to explain the ownership and artists. There is always a limit to the number of museums you can visit but if you have time for one in Genoa... More

One of the many palaces among Palazzi dei Rolli, this one can easily be missed since the palaces in via Balbi do not look as beautiful as in via Garibaldi. However, the inside of this palace is worth visiting, especially the Hall of Mirrors (which has been build in a similar fashion as the "Galerie des Glaces" in Versailles). Each... More

This is one of the places to go to when in Genoa. Located on a rather unassuming street, it is rather easy to miss it, but you will not regret it if you do not and drop in instead. Beautifully decorated rooms, beautiful paintings, well preserved things. On a sunny day it is a pleasure to walk out on the... More

Really had a very ambiguous impression from Genova at first! We arrived at the evening, went out at night and saw all the goodies of a port city with a very obvious consequences of being such. I didn't like it at all. But then next day we went out with the day light, it was sunny and we started to... More

This attraction was well worth the price. The decadence on display is amazing. The hall of mirrors is captivating and certainly the highlight, but there are other gems inside as well.

This is not a huge palace but it has some beautiful rooms (particularly the mirror room), and many of the paintings are well worth seeing. We went in the morning and it was quiet; being alone in the space gives you time to look at the detail and enjoy the atmosphere. You are invited to watch a 19 minute film... More

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.
