This street and these wonderful palaces are so beautifully preserved that you get the feeling of being transported back to the 16th century. Rich art works fill all the rooms and the size of the entrances and great halls is amazing. One room after another...More

These museums are in palaces built in the 16th and 17th centuries for Genoa's elite families. Rubens made an engraved series of them because he was so impressed. The ones that are open to the public contain great works of art.

Visited the great 3 museums on the Strada Nuovo. Not so interested in the art works but the Hall of mirrors was wonderful and the ceiling paintings were still in fine condition. Take time to go up in the lift to the high point for...More

We went here on a rainy day to explore the historic buildings and art in the 3 palazzos. Some parts were closed due to the bad weather but overall it was a great experience. There is a lot to see, maybe even to much. The...More

Went by myself, tickets are €9 for all three palaces, which I found reasonable. Some places were under construction when I went in July 2015 so I didn't get to see everything. There was still a lot of content so I'd recommend going.

These three palazzi are simply gorgeous and a must see in Genoa. There are a lot of important painters and breathtaking masterpieces (such as the marvellous Canova's la Maddalena Penitente). However, I would suggest to visit them only to people who are interested and know...More

The title says it all. These are amazing buildings with a great view over the city and fantastic furnishings and some terrific tromp l'oiel. The paintings are a lot of early Christian tales illustrated with white people in renaissance clothing.

I was disappointed in these museums except for the excellent opportunity to ride to the roof for a panoramic view of the city and harbour of Genoa. The "three" museums are integrated, but you can opt out of various parts. We thought the paintings rather...More

We paid 9e each for the visit to the three palazzos od Rosso, Bianco and Tursi. We are not greatly into paintings so the best parts were the period furniture on level 3 of Palazzo Rosso and the rooftop views of the city - take...More
