I loved the place, the oppulence, the good vibes, the polite and kind staff. The ticket was about 6 euros and you could take as much photos as you wanted, without flash. Very clean and well mainainted, it traps you into history. If in Genova,...More

So much opulence, so much grandeur, blocked from a harbour view by a newish building. So much of the building is now offices or bare. It was lovely to be able to imagine the past but also slightly sad that there is so little left....More

We were fortunate enough to be in town during one of the Rolli days when many palaces and churches are open to the public for free. This particular palace was our favourite with an excellent selection of sculpture and art displayed in delightful room settings

If you resist the temptation to visit every palazzo in Genoa - not a problem for us - and do only one, then this is possibly 'the one'. Everything you could wish for in gaudy glitz; nothing understated. Great views and a pretty little garden.

Museum was nice with informative English language signs in each room. That being said, I found the visit a little underwhelming. There is massive unrealized potential (like the city as a whole). Pictures of the garden look beautiful, but the reality is a small square...More

The palace was originally build by Genovese aristocracy, but was sold to the Royal family of Savoy in the 1820's. The royal family used it as their residence when staying in Genova. The palazzo is famous for it's beautiful "hall of mirrors". It will take...More
