The Musei di Strada Nuova makes up three historical palaces along Via Garibaldi; Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Tursi, which can be visited on a combined ticket. There is so much to see within these three museums, including plenty of artwork (my highlight being Andrea Sacchi's 'Daedalus and Icarus'), also beautiful gardens and absolutely sensational views from the terrace...

These three museums – Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Tursi – are truly beautiful and the combine ticket of 9 Euros to entry all three venues is very reasonable price. Build as private homes for the gentry of Genoa they are now used as public art galleries. I am fan of Caravaggio and as such I visited the museums... More

I was quite surprised by how interesting I found this museum. The art is interesting as is the palace and at the end, you get to go on to the roof and the view of Genoa is breath-taking. You buy the tickets from across the road in the shop and it is worth every penny. Allow a couple of hours... More

These are truly beautiful museums with lovely interiors and masses of incredible paintings - the height of which was for me the Paganini room with his Cannon violin. However, we were bemused to be told by staff to go in a certain direction - and we could not return to the rooms where we had visited. The museums were not... More

We visited four museums that are right by each other. Each museum has beautiful paintings along with many interesting things about each one.

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
