Discover Via Garibaldi Italy

The city of Genoa is the capital of the Liguria region and the sixth largest in Italy. Renowned for being the birthplace of Christopher Columbus it is also nicknamed 'La Supera' (the superb one) due to its elaborate pieces of architecture. The Via Garibaldi can be found in the heart of the city, and has been listed as a world heritage site since 2006 due to its iconic and decorative buildings. The street itself stretches for 250m and is home to both the Lomellino and Reale Palaces. The richly decorated, blue-grey exterior of the Lomellino Palace is reflective of the great wealth of Genoa's aristocracy during the 16 and 17th centuries. Equally the Reale Palace just along the street is decorated in a rich burgundy on the outside, with lavish ballrooms and throne rooms on the inside. The Grand Terrace here is well worth a visit, where views extend beyond the quaint courtyard below all the way to the city's port.
