The Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace) or Palazzo Stefano Balbi is a major palace in Genoa, which has been converted into a museum of fine art. The palace contains much original furniture and decoration from when it was originally built. Frescoes inside include the Glory of the Balbi Family by Valerio Castello and Andrea Sghizzi, Spring changing slowly to Winter by Angelo Michele Colonna and Agostino Mitelli, and Jove establishes Justice on the Earth by Giovanni Battista Carlone. It also contains canvases by Bernardo Strozzi, il Grechetto, Giovanni Battista Gaulli, Domenico Fiasella as well as Bassano, Tintoretto, Luca Giordano, Anthony van Dyck, Ferdinand Voet, and Guercino. It contains statuary by Filippo Parodi.
The best time to visit the museum in quite early in the morning when very few people are about and you have free reign to take photos and explore with little or no interruption.
Below are a few photos from our visit... enjoy.
