Duration: about 70'
Venue: • Piazza del Principe 4 - Genova
The Palace, or Villa del Principe, is Genoa's most important residence from the Renaissance. Notorious Admiral Andrea Doria began construction of the Villa in 1529, and his successor, Giovanni Andrea I, completed this magnificent residence with gardens stretching all the way to the harbor.
The Palace and Private Apartments are a genuine treasure trove of art, with paintings and frescoes, including those from Sebastiano del Piombo, Bronzino and Perin del Vaga, as well as stuccos, precious furniture and magnificent tapestries. The perfectly preserved Renaissance garden decorated by a variety of beautiful plants, pergolas, fountains and sculptures, is one of the most valuable portions of the period.

This was truly a lovely experience. Make this a part of your “to see and to do” list while you are in Rome.
A one of kind opportunity to live The Eternal City with all of our senses at once. Thank you!
The concerts were intimate experiences of talented musicians and singers, splendid music and the vibrant spaces of the churches where the concerts took place.
A superb way to spend an hour in this wonderful city
Intellectually fulfilling and fun. It may not seem very touristic, but it would take your visit to Rome to another level.
The concert would have been enough with just the knowledgeable tour of the church. Add beautiful baroque music to that and I was in heaven.
We felt almost transported back in time. An experience not to be missed.
Shouldn't be missed by anyone who likes music, especially early music!.
What a great way to have an experience in a Baroque Palazzo.
It was a unique experience! Interesting and moving.
We were charmed by the genuine enthusiasm of the performers and recommend to other Travellers
We warmly recommend anybody, visiting Rom, who loves painting art as well as music to participate to this sound and vision tour.
beautiful church, and music!
Great venue - beautiful singing - they really gave it all they had. Highly recommended. Great start to any evening in Rome.
Well worth the investment of time and money.
A definite highlight of our trip
