  • Definitely not to be missed. This street is really the most impressive collection of Italian palazzi you are likely to find. It is like moving back in time.  more »
  • We really enjoyed visiting the museums, strada Nuova is beautiful and all the palazzi were amazing to visit inside. Really nice the view from Palazzo Rosso and the gardens in Pazzo Bianco/Tursi. Good ...  more »
  • Palazzo Rosso, Bianchi and Tursi with 1 ticket. Especially on top of the roof of Rosso, you see the whole city. Beautiful rooms with beautiful ceilings, paintings, flooring.

  • Bad attitude of staff. Visitors are not allow to go to the bathroom before you buy the ticket if not the male staff will follow you until to the ladies bathroom and stop you. At least it happens on me and my friend. Then he will open the door and imply to leave when he don't understand your explanation. I believe that a museum is a public space and he has no right to do this.
  • Paintings are nice but no air con. Avoid in the summer!
  • Hugely beautiful...full of wonderful paintings...it shows to you how rich the Republic of Genova had been on 15th, 16th, 17th centuries
  • Too expensive, museum with a bit of everything.
  • Hidden treasure

Where to stay in Genoa

Located just steps from the city's famous tourist sites, Genoa's centrally located B&Bs and hotels offer comfortable lodgings suitable for all tastes and budgets. To avoid the expense and stress of driving and parking in Genoa's central districts, look for a boutique hotel just outside the city center. Staying out of the busy heart of Genoa is a practical and affordable compromise, offering a good base for exploring numerous fishing villages located along the coastline. Hostels operating in residential areas also offer private parking and easy access to buses into the center of town.
