The Rolli Palaces, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, are Genoa's Renaissance and Baroque architectural jewels. On this tour, you will discover every hidden corner of these majestic buildings.
Rolli Palaces Guided Tour
Our route begins in front of the Palazzo Rosso on Via Garibaldi, which is the area with the highest concentration of stately historical buildings in Genoa.
After discovering why the facade of Palazzo Rosso is famously adorned in crimson tones, we will head to the nearby Palace of Nicolosio Lomellino, also know as Palazzo Podestà. Inside this majestic renaissance building, we will admire its magnificent fresco and stucco paintings which cover the ceilings of the palace.
Our next stop is the Palace of Tobia Pallavicini, also referred to as Palazzo Carrega-Cataldi. This impressive building, which is the current headquarters of the chamber of commerce, is home to important works by grand Genoese baroque artists such as the famous Lorenzo de Ferrari.
As the icing on the cake of our tour, we will finish the tour at one of the most impressive halls of the Palace of Tobia Pallavicini - the Golden Gallery. The exquisite ornate detail makes this room one of the most lavish of all the Rolli Palaces.
This tour is done with an English and Italian speaking guide. Nevertheless, the beautiful art and decoration of the Places of Rolli transcend any language.
