In the past it was the Doge's home but now it has new funtions: a museum, and cultural centre with exhibitions. The original palace was built 1251-75 so it has a nice architecture. It's in the centre, on Ferrari square, so you can't miss it....More

They present special shows and the anni venti art show was exceptional. If you are in Genoa, don’t miss it!

Unless you are interested in a particular temporary art exhibition you can skip this. Not including the art exhibitions, there are only two rooms that you can visit. The staff seemed quite confused all the time and the view from the tower isn’t worth mentioning....More

The tour of the Doge's Palace is inexpensive at just five Euros. You see only two giant rooms of the palace, but these are amazingly opulent. They provide a contrast to the stark conditions in which political prisoners were kept. Your ticket gets you into...More

If you are walking around, just pass by it, nothing WOW, not so much things inside neither, but since you don't need so much time it is ok to go.

We were there to see the de Chirico exposition, which we enjoyed a lot. A very complete and illustrating exhibition of his works and life. Besides that, the Palazzo worth a visit by itself.

There are multiple reasons to spend time in P. Ducale. The art exhibition. The space. The cafe inside the lobby! The travel bookstore. The cool stone interior on a hot day. The short cut to get from San Lorenzo square to Ferrari square. The outdoor...More
