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.

Because Genoa is the town with more that 100 palaces, it is necessary to select few of them. Spinola Palace is also a museum. I was nice but nothing special when you have seen others ten palaces. Good place for lovers of history

The rooms are beautifulli painted and decorated. The most impressive is the mirror hall. The only entrance to the palace is by lift with the group. The groups are gathering every half hour.
