As a gallery this cannot compete with the world's great galleries, so if you have visited London's National Gallery, National Portrait Galley or the Tate, not to mention the V&A, you will be disappointed with the pictures and other objects on display in the Galleria...More

A very nice mansion decorated in the style of the period. Very ornate with beautiful frescos and furnishing of the period. Art work by Van Dyck, Van Cleve, Brueghel The younger and others. A very nice and relaxed visit. Yona S.

Absolutely stunning! Definitely worth visiting even though it's not as easy to find as other palaces because it's not on Via Garibaldi but rather further in the Old Town. I would highly recommend spending time wondering around old narrow streets to get to this Palazzo...More

In a small city you can find a beautiful palace to visit. A lot much nicer than a lot I have been in many places: You can see the very old money of the Spinola and other important families in Italy. Very well kept.

Because Genoa is the town with more that 100 palaces, it is necessary to select few of them. Spinola Palace is also a museum. I was nice but nothing special when you have seen others ten palaces. Good place for lovers of history

The rooms are beautifulli painted and decorated. The most impressive is the mirror hall. The only entrance to the palace is by lift with the group. The groups are gathering every half hour.

One of Genoa's biggest families used to own this beautiful Palazzo and, it is worth a quick visit (4€/pax). There are a few Rubens paintings which are amazing and, if you are lucky enough, the expo featuring traditional Ligurian Jeans costumes will be open. It...More
