this place is kind of confusing. regardless, we did visit and take some nice photos in the area. we were at Coloumbus' tomb at Seville cathedrale earlier in the year, so this brought us full circle.

Nothing much to see, except for the fact that one of the most famous residents of Genova is said to have lived here.

I wouldn’t waste my money going inside. There is nothing really to see. A film that tells nothing of Columbus. Could be good but sadly not. Look from the outside only.

The small house is what it is, so not much to be done. However the exhibition methods should be improved so that visitors don't feel they paid for too little. The Tower, which is linked to this site, has only few tours.

We went into the small house and had to pay for it. The house is really small with only one room to visit with a TV screen. No poor value
