The Palazzi dei Rolli is a group of palaces in Genoa, northern Italy. On July 13, 2006, forty-two of eighty subscribers to 'Palazzi dei Rolli' or rolls' palaces were entered by the special committee UNESCO meeting in Vilnius (Lithuania) between the members. About 10 million euro was spent on their restoration in the 1990s with the use of public and private capital. On January 20, 2007, a plaque was placed by UNESCO at the beginning of Via Garibaldi on the grounds that it inserts the description of Palazzi dei Rolli within the world heritage listing: The largest homes, various in shape and distribution, that were chosen at random in the lists (rolli) to host visits of state. The buildings, often built on sloping land, formed of a stepped atrium - courtyard - staircase - garden and rich interior decorations, express a singular social and economic identity and commencement of modern age urban architecture in Europe.

Not a spectacular "must see", but nice enough to do the visit.They also have English explanation cards (hidden) behind the Italian ones.

Several Palaces of former wealthy merchants and nobles line the Via Garibaldi and they really are palaces. The interiors are now a repository for art works, mostly religious but some of normal life scenes and some rooms retain the flavour of how they were originally...More

All three palazzi are worth seeing but we liked the fact that the Rosso wasn't just a gallery, as it showed rooms as they might have been lived in, in such grandeur and opulence, you really get a true idea of how others lived.

One of the palaces of the town is the King's palace. It's ok, but the best it is the garden and garden view on the town and the bay of Genoa

These are all magnificent amabassadorial residences -with the garandest mostly in one street, though many are dotted throughout the city. The city's Chamber of Commerce is one such palace and boasts a hall of mirrors that recalls Versailles, albeit on a smaller scale. Do a...More

Genoa was for well over a century a city of extraordinary wealth, coming largely from maritime trade. Those early plutocrats earned a place on the Rolli, like an early social register roll. And they built magnificent palazzi. For one price a visitor can see three...More

A ticket to the 3 main palazzi costs 9 euros. I'd suggest starting with the Palazzo Rossi. I literally had all 3 to myself when I visited in February and needed the 30 or more friendly staff I met en route to help me navigate...More
