Take the spiral staircase to the terrace
The top two floors of the Palazzo Spinola were tragically destroyed by fire, thus destroying their historical treasures. Instead of just closing the space completely, the decision was made to renovate the floors into the National Gallery - and fill them to bursting with gorgeous pieces of Italian art/clothing/ceramics. When your tour is over, climb the small iron spiral staircase to the terrace and enjoy sweeping views of the old city straight from the heart of it!
