Royal Palace Museum Genova Reviews & Ratings
This palace and museum was built in the 1600s and redeveloped over time. It has 18 rooms open to the public, all of which are phenomenal. This is a gem, a kind of little Versailles hidden in the Old City and overlooking the busy port. The surroundings and entrance-façade are not so great, but the palace itself is just amazing, you cannot miss it.
No crowds to battle with as we wandered from room to room. Even had palace bedroom and the frescoes were beautiful. As were the many chandeliers. Worth a visit
Amazing place! Definitely worth going! It is a stunning palace of royals. A lot of rooms, wonderful garden, magnificent pieces of furniture. Pay attention to the ceilings - they are true masterpieces. Ticket is 6€, for people under 25 it's 2€. You will be asked to leave your backpacks and jackets in case you have them.
Calling it a museum is a stretch. The period furniture with paintings was the best part along with one Rubens and 1 vanDyke(in the next room after the king's bedroom and not over his bed as illustrated in the room card). There are 4 people sitting at the door yet they have on line english explanations of only some of the rooms in 100 years@. Paintings are over illuminated by chandeliers or in too dark spaces. One villa is enough. That exhibits are not labeled in english is true of most museums in Italy so do your homework or go online while at the museum even though you are paying to enter.
Amazing Palace - from in- and outside. Beautiful old rooms
