The Ducal Palace also known as the Doge’s Palace is located on Piazza Matteotti, also with an entrance on Piazza De Ferrarri. It is the most important cultural centre in Genoa. Its construction dates back to the prosperous period of the Maritime Republic of Genoa.

Every year the palace hosts exhibitions and the most important events in the city. Some of the most important festivals are La storia in Piazza (Festival of history with famous national and international guests) and the International Poetry Festival (the most important poetry festival in Italy).

It’s a short walk from Genova Brignole and Genoa Principe stations, the city center, or a bus ride away; stop at Piazza De Ferrari next to the De Ferrari metro stop.
