I walked into the inner courtyard and looked around to see what a Genoan palazzo was like, and I did like what I saw. You don’t have any trouble at all picturing an Italian nobleman living in a fine building like that.

You can access this small collection either through the spectacular main entrance, or by the terrace from the Palazzo Bianco. There is a large collection of apothecary jars, ancient coins, tapestries, furniture and art. For music historians, there is a Paganini violin and music collection....More

Wonderful building and great art. Decked out in Carrara marble steps and flooring. Beautiful salas. I went to see Pagannini's Violin. It's sad to see these kind of monumental buildings be so neglected though. Buy your ticket at the souvenir shop downstairs before going to...More
