The Palazzo Reale (Royal Palace) is a large patrician residence built over time and decorated with splendor, especially by the Savoy in the nineteenth century and by two great Genoese dynasties: the Balbi and the Durazzo. The vaults of the lounges and galleries are frescoed by some of the most important names in Baroque and Rococo decoration. The visit includes the monumental atrium with eighteenth-century stuccos, the honorary courtyard, the hanging garden and the noble apartment on the second floor with spectacular reception areas such as the Throne Room, the Ballroom, and the Gallery of Mirrors.
