This is one of the palaces of Genoa. It is open to the public as a museum. There are some good paintings and some good painted ceilings and walls. It took us just over an hour to tour fully. If you happen to be in the area and you've a couple of hours to spare then it's worth seeing but... More

My kids and I loved this Palazzo. BEAUTIFUL. Worth a visit to this ornate Palazzo. Amazing. Easy to find. Could be a quick visit or stay as long as you like to enjoy every detail.

We came here on our honeymoon right before a cruise and this palazzo is the only thing we managed to do. It was great in every aspect. Beautiful, interesting and we were lucky enough to have high school students explain the exhibits as we went along (they were doing some sort of school project).

Very interesting palace with plenty to see. The view from the terrace is not bad. Also the terrace is the best place to actually get a good look at the facade.

Don't miss this if possible. The Hall of Mirrors is a standout, but there are some exceptional ceilings and some brilliant furniture to see as well.

Gorgeous palazzo with room after beautiful room pretty much as it was when the original inhabitants lived there. Beautiful art and furnishings very well preserved. Garden offers an amazing view of the harbor. Well worth a visit.

The entrance belies what is hidden up the several flight of marble stairs... (There is a lift available but you have to ask). Well worth the 4 Euros for the ticket. The sumptuous rooms of centuries passed are fascinating. Have a look for the almost hidden doors in the wall, stroll along the rood terrace and be prepared to be... More

Visited this as a free roil day and it was an interesting diversion. It consists of a series of rooms containg furniture/paintings from its previous existence as a royal palace.
