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.

  • Beautiful and elegant this way "new" town overlooked by beautiful residences. Walk at night offers unique sensations. Unmissable

  • In my opinion one of the most beautiful in Italy: pedestrian streets surrounded by palaces on both sides, museums of absolute level. From here you will understand why Genoa was called "la Superba"

  • The most impressive street in Genova, flanked by the most ostentatious of the Genovese palazzi di rolli. Better to visit on Rolli days, when most of these palaces are open to the public.
  • Incredible pallazi of which some (although not a lot) can be visited
  • The best old street in town, a lot of magnificent buildings on both sides.
  • Lovely experience. You can literally feel the history and greatness here. Well preserved stone palaces.
  • Street with monumental buildings. Get a guide or some kind of app to learn more about them.
