Holidays in Palazzo Rosso

Holiday Travel Guide
Palazzo Rosso

Check out the stunning frescoes decorating the majestic rooms of this palace as well as the works of art in the gallery.

The Palazzo Rosso is a magnificent structure housing one of Genoa’s most important art galleries. Dating back to the 17th century, the palace belonged to the affluent Brignole-Sale family, before becoming a public gallery. Capture photos of the building’s iconic red façade decorated with sophisticated green and white shutters and terraces.

Inspect the glorious array of portraits, including many initially donated by Duchess Maria Brignole-Sale of Galliera. Among the highlights are intriguing works by such artists as Anthony van Dyck, Gregorio de Ferrari and Guido Reni.

Examine the portraits of the aristocratic Brignole-Sale family and imagine them living in this house centuries ago. Marvel at the San Sebastiano piece by Guido Reni and Guercino’s La Morte di Cleopatra. The collection also has many paintings of a religious nature.

Notice the range of period décor and furniture on display in the rooms, halls and chambers of this mansion. Make your way to the rooftop for a wonderful vista of the harbor and the surrounding buildings of the historic center. An elevator is available to take you to the top.

Purchase entrance tickets, which include discounts for children. The site opens Tuesday through Sunday from morning until evening. It closes a little earlier in winter. Note that the museum here is part of the three sections that make up the Musei di Strada Nuova.

Find the Palazzo Rosso in the Old Town area in the central part of Genoa. Take the metro to the San Giorgio station beside the Old Port of Genoa and walk northeast for less than 10 minutes to reach this palace. See nearby sights, such as the Palazzo Grimaldi della Meridiana, the Palazzo Doria Tursi and the Palazzo Nicolosio Lomellino. Wander along the lively and historic Via Garibaldi for its many shops, cafés and sights.

"I was transferred to the sister hotel next door, the Grand Hotel Savoia, as were others who have written reviews lately.
