We enjoyed this gallery/museum overall, but I would recommend spending less time in the lower floors of the palazzo and miving pretty quickly to the upper floors that house the national gallery. The lower floors, which present authentic 18th century furnishings and decor, are so...More

Difficult to find the entrance to this palace/museum but definitely worth seeking out. The art is displayed in a beautiful palace over several floors. There is a lovely little terrace at the top of a spiral staircase which gives great views over the city. There...More

This gallery is cheap to visit and full of interesting pictures of the rich of Genoa as they were in the past. There are a lot of stairs to climb!

A very interesting museum, but visits are only allowed on the half hour, so you will have to wait if you arrive in between. You are accompanied everywhere by security, who don't act as guides at all. It can be a bit off putting, but...More

As a gallery this cannot compete with the world's great galleries, so if you have visited London's National Gallery, National Portrait Galley or the Tate, not to mention the V&A, you will be disappointed with the pictures and other objects on display in the Galleria...More

A very nice mansion decorated in the style of the period. Very ornate with beautiful frescos and furnishing of the period. Art work by Van Dyck, Van Cleve, Brueghel The younger and others. A very nice and relaxed visit. Yona S.

Absolutely stunning! Definitely worth visiting even though it's not as easy to find as other palaces because it's not on Via Garibaldi but rather further in the Old Town. I would highly recommend spending time wondering around old narrow streets to get to this Palazzo...More

In a small city you can find a beautiful palace to visit. A lot much nicer than a lot I have been in many places: You can see the very old money of the Spinola and other important families in Italy. Very well kept.

It is almost impossible to find this mini palace. A car does not fit on the surrounding streets so you have to walk. The neighborhood is scary and possibly unsafe. It was the first time in Europe we were afraid to walk. Once inside on...More
