Having enjoyed the interior courtyard spaces of Palazzo Bianco, I was surprised to step out onto the elevated terrace. I may have overstated it by saying "rooftop," but for sure this terrace is up, over-hanging the Strada Nuova. It's all rather voyeuristic. From above, you...More

The Palazzo Bianco runs into the Doria Tursi and since the room guides are very specific n their instructions that you follow the signed route, you have to trek through both. Like so many other Italian art collections, unless your interest is in religious subjects...More

while this was an enjoyable visit, the museum just didn't quite hit the high notes, which was disappointing. Some of the art was good and interesting, it is a poor man's Florence. The visit was, accordingly short. Its is nevertheless worth a visit, but lower...More

Our Genoa tour guide mentioned 2 special pieces in this museum. I wanted to see the Canova sculpture and the Carravaggio painting. We were given very clear directions to the sculpture and then the painting. Upon reaching the top of the stairs we weren't allowed...More

Like the palazzo rosso, it is a beautiful palace and a museum. Some really nice pieces there. And the garden gives a view on the palazzo rosso.

The Palazzo Bianco is one of several very grand palaces built for a Doge. The architecture is impressive, to say the least, and it forms a fitting repository for such wonderful old-master paintings including Caravaggio, Veronese, Rubens, Van Dyck, to name but few. It houses...More

This is really a museum of so many things with plenty of art and fabrics, clothes, coins, ... leading to lovely gardens for photos. Well worth entrance fee, although guides are always on your shoulder and like Ikea, you have to follow the arrows !

I saw this along with the red palace and I really enjoyed it, for different reasons. The white palace had a small but very interesting display of 18th century clothing. The gardens are also small but very pretty. I would say if you only have...More

Located in one of the oldest original street with antique mansions shows interesting works of art particularly of the 17th century. Deserve to be seen.

Palazzo Bianco along with Palazzo Rosso and Palazzo Tursi are truly beautiful galleries and the combine ticket of 9 Euros to entry all three venues is very reasonable price. Build as private homes for the gentry of Genoa they are now used as public art...More
