  • This is a must see in Genoa. Even if you are not a fan of history you might as well go see the palaces. The architecture and detail are truly amazing.

  • Worth visiting if you’re in Genoa. You’ll be able to visit 3 museums for 9€. There’s a lot to see. I went at around 10am on a weekday and it was practically empty.
  • The Musei do Strada Nuova comprises three palaces on Via Garibaldi. They house art, interior items and are lavishly decorated with a tonne of frescoes and gorgeous details. I was there on a Tuesday morning and had the place almost to myself. A couple of the staff were incredobly friendly and chatted to me for some time about the collections and their lives. The museum is good value, only €9 euro for everything, and you could easily spend a half day looking at everything. I spent about 2.5 hours looking around. My favourite collections were the lace room and the landscapes on Palazzo Rosso. The only negative is that it is hard to find your way about, in some places staff will direct you, but it would be easy to miss something. Paganinis violin was especially tucked away. Some more signage would be helpful.
