The authorities are just completing renovations here and they have effectively retained it,s magnificence in doing so. You can walk through the courtyard into a beaut garden with an outlook over the modern port and there are some comfy seats in the shade here as well. The building is thought to be the largest 16th century structure in Genoa and... More

The Palazzo has very beautiful rooms including a gallery of mirrors. Yet it is its outside appearance as seen from the courtyard that struck me most. The architecture is unique with terraces,porticos and a view of the harbor that must have been stunning before they built the elevated thruway.

Beautiful palace and nice garden. Great views from the garden. A guided tour is better if you want to get more from it.

One of the top attractions in Genoa. Marvellous art and decoration - look up at the ceilings. On a Sunday it was a haven of peace.

Only a few rooms open to view but the ones that we could view were beautiful. Several were used for the filming of 'Princess Grace of Monaco' recently and I can understand why. There was a very interesting video in English about the history of the palace well worth watching first.

There are so many palazzos in Genoa they get a bit jumble but this is a real beauty. Hard to believe it was just a second residence of a king. Wish they had an audio tour.

Overall we weren't very impressed with genoa, however this was on bit we did enjoy. Those between 18-25 get reduced admission at only 2euros but 4 euros normally, worth the money a lovely insight and allowed to take non flash photos without a photo pass.

The rooms are stunning, well preserved and have detail cards of all the items and paintings inside them. The king's balcony is enormous and you get a good view of the sea. The one thing I did not like was that the tour guide was all over us. I had to tell him several times to stop hustling us and... More

This is one place that must be visited in Genoa. It was the home of the Kings of Sardinia and their relatives. It is truly stunning and full of beautiful furniture and ceramics and French clocks.
