  • 2 hours

Enjoy a guided walking tour through the magical Italian city of Genoa. This trip also includes entry into the Strada Nuova museums so you can explore them at your own pace.

Guided walking tour of Genoa

We will start our guided walking through the historic center of Genoa next to the tourist information office located in the Old Harbour of the city. From here, we will head to the nearby Piazza San Lorenzo, where you will see the beautiful exterior facade of Genoa cathedral. Did you know that its two front towers are not the same height?

Just behind the temple, we will encounter another iconic landmark of Genoa, the Doge's Palace. After appreciating the details of its elegant exterior architecture we continue our walk to the Carlo Felice Theatre: the principle Opera House of Genoa. Standing in front of its magnificent neoclassical entrance, you will hear all about the most successful performances staged at this prestigious venue.

The walking tour ends on Via Garibaldi, the street where you will find the fabulous Strada Nuova museums.

Tickets for the Strada Nuova museums

At the end of the walking tour of Genoa, we will give you the tickets for the Strada Nuova museums which you can explore at your own pace in the way you want.

The museums are located at the following historical buildings:

  • Palazzo Rosso: art gallery which brings together masterpieces by artists such as Alberto Durero, Van Dyck and Paolo Veronese, among others.
  • Palazzo Bianco: home to paintings by Caravaggio, Rubens, and Zurbarán.
  • Palazzo Tursi: houses a varied collection of historic sculptures, ceramics, coins, and musical instruments.
