Via Garibaldi is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, an open-air museum in the heart of Genoa

The famous Strada Nuova (today via Garibaldi) is a splendid sixteenth-century street in the historical center of Genoa, one of the most famous things to see in Genoa. Its artistic value and pristine buildings make it a priceless monument in history (go to the historical insight).

The buildings, known all over Europe already in the 1600s thanks to the Flemish painter Pieter Paul Rubens, are part of the Palazzi dei Rolli (UNESCO World Heritage Site) and hosts the Strada Nuova’s Museums (Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Doria-Tursi).

From Via Garibaldi starts two routes to discover the Old Town (check out the routes 1 and 2).
