  • The Royal Palace Museum allows you to immerse yourself in the splendor of a sumptuous genovese. In fact, although in the nineteenth century became the seat of the Kings of Piedmont, the Palace was founded in 600 as magnificent House of Durazzo family and presents the typical characteristics of the Baroque palazzo genovese. Magnificent salons with stuccoes and frescoes. It has an outstanding collection of art and furniture. You cannot leave Genoa without having visited

  • Very plush and well maintained and monitored. Ticket prices for everyone. For tourists to Genoa, the visit is a must

  • Remarkable palate that does not mine by entering but whose interior decoration is the most beautiful french castles. In more a magnificent gallery worthy of Versailles and without people during our visit. No barrier we can approach the paintings and furniture. Little gardens. But a nice terrace with a view of the courtyard of the Palace. Explanatory signs in several languages.

  • wonderful roman architecture special attraction is Mural paintings on walls of roof
  • Smaller than you would imagine for a total palace. Not so grand on the outside as it is a city palace. But many surprises lie within.
  • Beuatiful rooms but no air con. Avoid in the summer!
  • All the rooms seem not to be well cared of. There are only very basic translations of the descriptions.
  • Beautiful palace!

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.
