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".
