A very interesting museum, but visits are only allowed on the half hour, so you will have to wait if you arrive in between. You are accompanied everywhere by security, who don't act as guides at all. It can be a bit off putting, but...More

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.

It is almost impossible to find this mini palace. A car does not fit on the surrounding streets so you have to walk. The neighborhood is scary and possibly unsafe. It was the first time in Europe we were afraid to walk. Once inside on...More

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.
