  • 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.
