What a great street to wander along! The palaces and gardens are beautiful. We saw the municipal hall and a lovely garden. The Deutch bank has a gorgeous fresco in the courtyard. A treasure shop is at 12 Garibaldi upstairs. So eclectic! We had a lovely and cheap latte along the street too!

This is a must see and walk for that mater while in Genoa. There are a ton of places to eat and shop but that isn't the half of it.

And you can see why the 100 palaces in the area built from Genoa's heyday. Step off the street to enter the opulence of the courtyards and the palaces within. I recommend stopping at palazzo rosso- especially the 6th floor panorama.

We enjoyed walking up and down Via Garibaldi each day (it was two blocks from our hotel, the BW Metropoli) and picking out how differently each fabulous palace was built or decorated from the others. They say it is one of the first examples of urban neighborhood planning or architecture, and it is interesting to think about the lifestyles of... More

We enjoyed walking around in Genoa. Via Garibadi is a nice street in the old town with many nice shops and small good restaurants. This is also close to the harbour area.

Genoa is way under estimated in terms of tourism. ALL the churches are decorated in magnificent Baroque ornaments, paintings and sculptures. There are around 100 palaces throughout the city and scores of beautiful piazzas.

Via Garibaldi is a fine example of Italian architecture and the uniquely Italian street layout and pattern.

A prime place to visit with art collections in the three palazzo, Rosso, Bianco and Tursi. It is mainly pedestrianised and lined with beautiful buildings.
