  • Via full of charm and history, the cultural center of Genoa. To walk about in quiet Sunday morning

  • Via Garibaldi is a Very Beautiful Street with Many Beautiful Palazzo Buildings on either side, some of which are a museum to which you can gain entrance. 
  • But how many things we have in Italy!! This street, sandwiched between the UNESCO heritage, it was a wonderful surprise in Genoa City Centre. Unfortunately for logistical reasons we couldn't visit the various house-museums, but already a promenade and access to the Media Center allows you to understand the magnitude of these buildings. Absolutely inevitable

  • 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.
