You haven't seen Genoa if you haven't visited at least one of the palazzi build from the profit made by investors in the early voyages of Christopher Colombus and his contemporries to South America. This is serious wealth, from paintings to the sheer exuberance of the buildings themselves.

The three Palazzi museums, Rosso, Bianco and Tursi, make up Musei di Strada Nuova (the original name of Via Garibaldi). These museums are a top draw in Genoa/Genova but Palazzo Rosso was my favorite. Each one will take 30-60 minutes to tour depending on your interests.

Ok this the grandest street you will ever walk down. It appears that the wealth from trade was spent on these splendid palaces. Such beauty. Such wealth probably a shame they didn't share a little.

This street and these wonderful palaces are so beautifully preserved that you get the feeling of being transported back to the 16th century. Rich art works fill all the rooms and the size of the entrances and great halls is amazing. One room after another of beautiful paintings, tapestries and furniture. Plenty of information is provided along the way. There... More

These museums are in palaces built in the 16th and 17th centuries for Genoa's elite families. Rubens made an engraved series of them because he was so impressed. The ones that are open to the public contain great works of art.

Visited the great 3 museums on the Strada Nuovo. Not so interested in the art works but the Hall of mirrors was wonderful and the ceiling paintings were still in fine condition. Take time to go up in the lift to the high point for the city view. We had the benefit of sound images which gave an eerie feel... More

We went here on a rainy day to explore the historic buildings and art in the 3 palazzos. Some parts were closed due to the bad weather but overall it was a great experience. There is a lot to see, maybe even to much. The buildings itselfs are already worth visiting, great panoramic view over the city!

Went by myself, tickets are €9 for all three palaces, which I found reasonable. Some places were under construction when I went in July 2015 so I didn't get to see everything. There was still a lot of content so I'd recommend going.

These museums are a nice way to spend a couple of hours (or more if you are that sort!) The Museo Bianca has great art. The Museo Tursi - well, we couldn't find much at all. But it is a wonderful building full of administrative offices, and poor signage!! The ticket was cheap, the art somewhat grand, but for my... More

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
