Historic Walking Area Landmark
In the historic heart of Genoa, Via Garibaldi is one of the more ornate and grandiose streets in all of Italy, complete with stonework and vivid colors. Sixteenth- through 18th-century palaces with hidden courtyards and gardens line the 250 m (820 ft) long road.

  • This street is heaven for Tourists.If you have plan to stay in Genova start from this street. Buy Museo Card for 24 or 48 hours incl all transfer from starting 15 Euro !! Ah also at then end of Garibaldi street you may find Ferrari square which is also amazing .
  • A must place to visit if in Genova. Historical place. A first Wall Street of the history.
  • Marvel at the architecture, Italian style. Take pictures if you want, but it'd be a shame cuz it wouldn't do the place justice. Just enjoy the sight and the moment. Thoroughly worth visiting.
  • definiten place to go in Genoa, full of beautiful buildings!
  • Nice galleries and design shop. Plus the street is full of historical buildings
