The Palazzo Rosso was built in 1680 for the brothers Ridolfo and Gio Francesco I Brignole Sale. The first noble floor remained almost intact since then and has a valuable collection of paintings. Even more surprising is the second noble floor where, in addition to...More

We were lured in by thinking this was a palace. It is however essentially an art gallery. The reason for this being that it was mostly destroyed during the Second World War and so has been reconstructed. This however has meant a lot of the...More

Great collection, and overall a lovely building. Make sure you visit the roof, to check an incredible panorama of Genoa.

The most interesting of the three palaces on the Via Garibaldi covered by the Museums Card.. Beautiful palace, interesting even without the mostly Italian Renaissance religious art. In addition there is a wonderful mirador terrace on the roof. Go up in the lift to reach...More

Like a semi-precious stone hidden in a rubbish tip, hidden amongst the dross of third and fourth rate paintings (some quite terrifyingly bad, actually), there are one or two that are only second rate, and so are worth seeing. However to get to these you...More

If you only get a chance to visit one palazzo and want to see some of the opulent interiors as well as works of art, then choose this one. The rooms of Palazzo Rosso with their frescos and painted ceilings are quite atmospheric when there...More

This place is worth the visit! For €9 you can do three museums. Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Tutsi. In my opinion the Palazzo Rosso is the best. It is amazingly decorated with ceilings and walls frescos. It has also an amazing 360 degree...More
