It is an ordinary old palace which is currently being used as a museum. The square is spacious though the museum in nothing special.

Piazza Ducale originally was the residence of the Doges of the maritime republic. Part of it served as the center of government. It is a massive, imposing structure opening onto Piazza Matteotti and adjacent to Piazza dei Ferrari. The attraction today of Palazzo Ducale is...More

This Palace, located near the harbour, was a really disapointing visit, since it´s really abandoned, only same areas available to the public (and those, urgently needed to be repaired..) and the gardens need urgently the due care. It´s a shame due to the History that...More

Excellent selection of Warhol's screen prints and drawings. Beautiful building lots of different (I think 9 rooms) of his work to see. Very good quality of work too.

Well it's not a surprise. As most of the palace in Italy it's a piece of art. You could think it's one more with paintings and beautiful architecture.. but.. well it's Italy.. if you're bored with beautiful places why are you here.

however the main rooms are used for congress, meetings etc, so in a nutshell you cannot visit anything. stick to the facade and the courtyards

It's Genoa's foremost public building, but it is also a work of art. It's architecture flows onto the beautiful Ferrari. It is the home of art shows and special events. It's a perfect integration of function and architecture.

All white with its oh no organic vegetable garden with my lovely farmers market in the adjoining plaza with extraordinary offerings. I will never forget those fantastic varieties of mushrooms!
