loved it

We loved wandering around this area. Genoa is quite an interesting town with few tourists and lots of alleyways through which you reach this area.

I am amazed this is an UNESCO world heritage site. Granted, it has two museums, but overrated in my opinion.

No visit to Genoa is complete without a stroll along the Via Garibaldi, enjoy a beer or Capuccino in one of the cafes

Went down the Via Garibaldi several times on our way to various other destinations. We didn't go into the museum but the Tourist Office staff were really helpful. You can get a glimpse of the stunning ceilings in the foyer of Deutche Bank.

This street was obviously the number one address for the very wealthy merchants of old Genoa. Most of the say 4 level huge buildings have been restored either as business addresses or apartments. They are spectacular, many with central courtyards & highly ornate.

Great to be able to walk around with no cars in this wide, 16th century street. Lovely architecture such as Palazzo Lomellino. You are able to access Palazzo Lomellinos courtyard, (free), to snap a photo or two, just walk through the spiked door entrance off the street. There is not much vibrancy in the street, so if that is what... More

This road is so popular and a must see. You need time and plenty of money. This is a must do... It is filled with restaurants, gelatos, shops, entertainment...

The pedestrian only street is nice but nothing special. Stop there if you're in Genoa anyway but don't make a special trip.

I had walked on this beautiful street everyday during staying in Genoa for 3days. Its a short distance but there are gorgeous buildings on the both sides & quiet! Especially, I enjoyed visiting the gallery to see the colorful Genoa pictures on this street!!
