Via Garibaldi, the New Street of the sixteenth century nobility, is one of the most fascinating historical urban areas in Europe. Valuable buildings, still intact today, look out onto the street - some of them are owned by the City Council, like Palazzo Rosso and Palazzo Bianco, which house the most important art galleries in the city from the modern era, with period rooms and furnishings.

Palazzo Tursi, the Grimaldi-Doria Tursi building, built in 1565 for Nicolò Grimaldi, and then given up to the Doria's, to whom we owe the side galleries, is the most important building in the Street and houses the present day City Council. It is architecturally innovative for the skilful adaptations to the unlevelled land, with its passing entrance hall, raised gallery courtyard and scenic stairways leading to the gardens above, and forms a telescopic perspective from the street to the hills in the background.
