We loved the palazzo and the terraces. When you get a ticket to get access to three palaces and it’s easy to get lost in their art and history. Yet Palazzo Bianco had the best terraces and most intimate setup to contemplate art - with...More

It is an 18th century palace used to lodge wealthy tenants. In 1889 it was given to the Municipality of Genoa by testament by the Duchess of Galliera, who wanted it "to form a public gallery". For this reason - in addition to the monumental...More

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

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 !
