The Palazzi dei Rolli is a group of palaces in Genoa, northern Italy. On July 13, 2006, forty-two of eighty subscribers to 'Palazzi dei Rolli' or rolls' palaces were entered by the special committee UNESCO meeting in Vilnius (Lithuania) between the members. About 10 million euro was spent on their restoration in the 1990s with the use of public and private capital. On January 20, 2007, a plaque was placed by UNESCO at the beginning of Via Garibaldi on the grounds that it inserts the description of Palazzi dei Rolli within the world heritage listing: The largest homes, various in shape and distribution, that were chosen at random in the lists (rolli) to host visits of state. The buildings, often built on sloping land, formed of a stepped atrium - courtyard - staircase - garden and rich interior decorations, express a singular social and economic identity and commencement of modern age urban architecture in Europe.

All three Palazzi (Bianco, Rosso and Tursi) are spectacular buildings, and well worth their Unesco World Heritage grading. Certainly worth the visit, and the ticket was good value at €9 for all three. The one point worth making though is that they are all really...More

All the palaces are spectacular (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) but take time to visit palazzi Bianco, Rosso, Tursi and Spinola to see the great interiors and wonderful art. A combined ticket is available from the nearby Visit Genoa shop/office.

Three separate palaces, really impressive. Inside mainly paintings collection, with Flemish, Dutch and Italian masters. Lushly decorated rooms, nice gardens. A real must when in Genova.

We were fortunate to be in Genova in the spring on one of the Rolli Days weekends. We enjoyed popping in several of the palazzi.

This place can't compare to some of the major city museum. But it has enough "stuff" to keep one busy for an hour. The roof top platform is worthy a visit.

It seems that the reviews are about palazzo Rosso not Rolli. They are also located at different places on the map. Can someone clarify?
