Pocket Guide: Porto Antico White Palace Hotels

Genoa’s White Palace (Palazzo Bianco)

Travel back in time to Genoa’s golden age by visiting the plush Palazzo Bianco, once the home of a wealthy family and now an art gallery. Sited on the elegant 16th-century street, Via Garibaldi, this historical palace is part of the Musei di Strada Nuova, a cluster of three palaces: Palazzo Tursi, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Rosso.

Where to Stay near the White Palace (Palazzo Bianco)

Anyone with a passion for culture and history should find a place to stay near the White Palace, part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From historic properties and lavish high-end hotels to characterful B&Bs and pocket-friendly hotels, there’s a wide variety of accommodation within easy reach of the White Palace.

History of the White Palace

Built in the 1500s by one of Genoa’s wealthiest families, the Palazzo Bianco then moved into the De Franchi family. In 1711, Federico De Franchi gave the palace to his creditor Maria Durazzo Brignole-Sale, who spruced-up the building to bring it up-to-date. It was then that the building became known as the White Palace due to the striking colour of its exterior. In 1899, the last member of the family, Maria Brignole-Sale, donated the palace and her art collection to the public to be used as an art gallery.

Visit the White Palace

A must for art fans, the White Palace is loaded with works by Flemish, Spanish and Italian artists from the 12th to the 17th century, including Caravaggio. Stand-out pieces include Portrait of a Lady by Lucas Cranach the Elder, Van Dyck’s Vertumno e Pomona, Rubens’ Venere e Marte (Venus and Mars) and a clutch of 15th-century religious icons. Italian painters featured in the gallery include Paolo Veronese and Filippino Lippi, while you’ll see Genoese painters Giovannia Benedetto Castiglione, Bernardo Strozzi, Valerio Castello and many more on display. A small rooftop terrace offers fabulous views of the city for a small fee, and when you buy your tickets to Palazzo Bianco, you also get entry to Palazzo Rosso and Palazzo Tursi on the same street.
