Italy: Via Garibaldi and Palazzo Doria-Tursi in Genoa

On Friday I got four postcards: two from Italy, one from Japan and one from Germany.

One of the cards from Italy shows the Via Garibaldi and the Palazzo Doria-Tursi in Genoa. Genoa is the sixth largest city of Italy and Italy's largest seaport. It is also the capital of the Italian Region of Liguria and was once the capital of the independent Republic of Genoa. In 2004 it was the European Capital of Culture. The Via Garibaldi is a street in Genoa's historic centre. It was built from 1550 onwards and was once known as Strada Nuova. The Palazzo Doria-Tursi is just one of the many palaces on the Via Garibaldi. It houses Genoa's city hall and a museum. The Strade Nuove and the system of the Palazzi dei Rolli in Genoa are since 2006 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
