"Art Museum"
Ranked #5 in Genoa Can't Miss Attractions
1.3km from city centre
"Built in 1680 for brothers Ridolfo and Gio Francesco I Brignole Sale. Since then, the first noble floor has been almost intact and has precious paintings. Even more surprising is the noble floor of the second floor. In addition to paintings, there are also 17th century frescoes and plasters, and 19th century colored marble floors. Your visit will continue to visit the private rooms of Gio Francesco II Brignole Sale, which include 18th century frescoes, paintings and stucco. You can't miss the former Parisian residences of Dukes of Galliera-the furniture and furnishings of Maria Brignole Sale and Raffaele De Ferrari-this is the splendid Hôtel De Matignon where the French Prime Minister now lives. Climb to the top floor of Dipendenze in Palazzo Rosso, where you will find a little gem: an example of the perfect combination of ancient and modern. Here you can find the apartment of Caterina Marcenaro, director of the Genoa Civic Museum in the 1950s. Architect Franco Albini reorganized it by inserting works of art collected by Marcenaro in the apartment, to be precise in the 1950s. Imagine the 17th and 17th century paintings and furniture in the apartment side by side with other furniture and household appliances seen in American movies and TV series in the 1950s. Your visit ends with emotions that Genoa hardly has: a 360-degree panoramic view of the city, the port and the highest terrace of Palazzo Rosso. If you think that the entrance fee is 9 euros and you are allowed to visit Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Doria-Tursi, where the city government of Genoa is located, you will understand this attraction you cannot miss."

"Transportation strategy: Starting from Florence, there are many Cinque Terre day tour groups. If you want to go deeper, you can take a train to La Spezia. There is a train that connects directly with the Cinque Terre. You can buy a pass. There are five villages, Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. Generally speaking, Manarola’s bay scenery is the most classic, with one side facing the mountain and the other facing the sea. The houses in Riomaggiore are the most colorful and can be photographed in the alleys. Monterosso is a relatively large village with very good ones. Beach. There are everything for eating, drinking, and fun. There are many restaurants on the beach, most of which are Italian style. To the east of the train station, there are net red seafood set meals. I think most of them are Chinese, and the locals are not so luxurious. The two villages can be visited or not. Food guide: The local Italian cuisine is very pure, but the Chinese people may not like to eat, ice cream is as good as always. Shopping guide, you can buy some tourist souvenirs. Journey experience: The village between the mountains and the sea in northern Italy, It's the Cinque Terre, but I feel that it is more beautiful than Positano in Southern Italy, or the latter. Small Tips: If you want to live for a day, it is a more recommended itinerary, so you can check in all five villages in depth."
