It is a beautiful palace. It was the garden, though, that made me feel amazed. And the view from the roof terrace.

Given the entrance fee is only €4 I thought this was a very worthwhile attraction. It is close to the other main sites & just minutes from the principal station, so slips easily into your itinerary. There aren’t a huge amount of rooms to be viewed but some, the Hall of Mirrors in particular, is stunning. The main facade, only visible by paying to enter, is also a photo opportunity that justifies the ticket.

It'd just a dusty old palace, and not much to it at that. Looks nice from the outside, yes. But just a small portion of the interior is open to the public. I may not be a palazzo expert, but it just seemed shabby. Cracked plaster, dusty old furniture, some nice frescos but mostly amateur looking. Most paintings were average quality copies. The statues were not in very good shape. (To be fair, old art can't always be pristine.) In fact, it looked like random heads atop ill-repaired bodies. Most pictures online just show the exterior, but there was no access during my visit. At least the place was cheap- maybe 4 euro? Maybe worth a look see for palace enthusiasts, but don't expect much!

Quite a small palace compared to others visited - at least in terms of the rooms open for viewing. There are about 10 on the upper floor you can see which were used for ceremonial and banqueting purposes. The lower living accommodation is not available. There is also a small terrace garden at the rear with some statues overlooking the city. Entrance fee was pretty cheap through at 4 euro.

Rooms are very opulent in terms of their decoration and furnishings and we enjoyed looking around. However, there is not a great deal of information available, aside from QR codes in around 3 rooms that you access on your mobile for a couple of minutes commentary on the specific room, in either English or Italian.

Your visit will probably take around 30 mins.

A wet Sunday during covid we did a spot of museum visits and ventured upon this one. Body temperature taken at the door, tickets then bought inside. It was quiet and i guess only 6 other visitors that we saw inside.

The rooms are well maintained qnd have QR codes for english commentary or reading. The museum is only on the 2nd floor which begs the question what are they doing with the rooms on the other floors?

Access at the end is allowed to the garden terrace overlooking the port. There are also some clean toilets and vending machines

Dating back to the early 1600’s when it was built for the Balbi family (subsequently owned and expanded by a succession of families), this massive home contains countless original items such as paintings, tapestries, furniture, sculptures, etc. The numerous rooms are decorated and arranged as if the homeowners will be returning shortly. The inner courtyard and garden provide a luxurious and tranquil environment. The top floor terrace offers sweeping city and port views. Each room has very informative literature (in several languages). A visit here was a step back to the golden era of Genoa’s seafaring history.

If you have the opportunity to visit Genoa at ROLLI days, don't forget to visit this wonderful palace. As the other builfings at Via Garibaldi you will find marvelous paintings on the ceilings and the Windows room is just wonderful to see.

First of all, we loved genoa! We were on a 4h free walking tour with Spyros from hostel Manena and he showed us an amazing city. That said, Palazzo Reale did not disappointed us and had a lot of history to show, as the whole city does. I was specially thrilled with the warming welcome of the receptionist, that even let us walk back to the throne room to take a picture with the crown on and took pictures of both of us. It's 6 euros and it's a great museum, so I recommend you to go

We went to Museo Palazzo Reale Di Genova on one rainy Monday morning in November. We went in and there was no one at the ticket office. The palace garden was in front of us so we went in and took a look at the garden. The garden and terrace is not big. We can see the harbour view from there. In the middle is the fountain and the beautiful patterned pebble mosaic surrounding the fountain.  From the garden we can see this red and beige exterior heritage building. It was once a palace but now is a museum. Later the lady from the tourist information centre told us the museums are closed on Monday. Happy Travelling!
