This is an absolutely stunning and beautifully preserved piece of Genova's rich history. The mirror room is stunning, worth paying the entrance fee for that alone, as it's like a miniature Versailles. There are helpful information cards in each room in English and Italian, and there is a video presentation that you can watch before your visit which is very interesting and helps explain the history of the place. The gentleman on reception was really friendly and happy and gladly put the information video into Italian for me so that I could make the most of the language practice! Unfortunately you can't take photos, which is understandable, I know a lot of places have this policy, but there were no postcards or guidebooks to buy at the end of the tour- they are missing a trick here as I'm sure nearly everyone who visits must want to share how beautiful this place is!! Well worth a visit. Entry was free for me as I study Italian literature at University- if you're a student and study something relevant (history/Italian/Art History) give it a mention at the desk, they might let you in free! I'd have been happy to pay for entry though, as it is only 4 euros and really is a splendid building.
